Gigabyte Aorus RGB 512GB SSD Review

4K Random Write v QD Performance



Gigabyte quote a random 4K write performance figure for the drive as up to 440,000 IOPS. We couldn’t get close to that with our QD4 tests, the fastest IOPS figure we saw was 195,752 IOPS.

4K Random Write v QD Performance Compared


As mentioned in the 4K random read results, the Aorus RGB drive uses the same controller and NAND combination as PNY’s XLR8 CS3030. At queue depths 1, 2 and 4 the PNY drive outperforms the Gigabyte drive, however at a QD of 32, this switches around with the Aorus RGB being the faster of the two drives.
