Corsair Neutron NX500 800GB SSD Review

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.

Random 4K read/write performance of the NX500 800GB drive is quoted as up to 300,000 IOPS and 270,000 IOPS, respectively. With our test setup of IOMeter, we couldn’t match those official figures.

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.
