We used CrystalDiskMark 8 to test the random performance of the drive at lower queue depths (QD1 – QD8 where most of the everyday workloads occur) using 1 to 4 threads.
4K Random Read Performance QD1-QD8
The 2TB Corsair MP600 Pro XT’s read performance climbs smoothly throughout the tested queue depths and threads with a peak performance figure of 361,516 IOPS (1,480MB/s) at QD8 using 4 threads. This figure is 27,649 IOPS faster than the previous MP600 Pro drive managed for the same test.
4K Random Write Performance QD1-QD8
In the write tests, the best performance figure we saw was the 363,864 IOPS (1,490MB/s) using 4 threads at a QD of 8.
