8KB Random Read Performance
A high degree of data centre work is done with 8K data so we tested the drive at this data level (8 threads, 16GB span) to see how it would perform. The read performance peaks at 59,063 IOPS (483.85MB/s) at a QD of 64. Once again after the initial burst to QD2, it remained very consistent across the tested queue depths.
8KB Random Write Performance
In the 8K random write test, the drive peaked at 53,856 IOPS (441.19MB/s) right at the start of the test run at QD1. Once again the drive’s performance remained very consistent throughout the test run, which is what you should expect from a drive aimed at being used in a data centre environment.
