IOMeter is another open source synthetic benchmarking tool which is able to simulate the various loads placed on hard drive and solid state drive technology.
We test with both random read and write 4k tests, as shown above. There are many ways to measure the IOPS performance of a Solid State Drive, so our results will sometimes differ from manufacturer’s quoted ratings. We do test all drives in exactly the same way, so the results are directly comparable.
The tested drive produced 211,912 IOPS for reads and 169,365 IOPS for writes and while these didn’t match the official numbers they are the fastest we have seen from a Corsair drive to date.
