Patriot Hellfire 240GB 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.

Patriot quote Random 4K read/write performance for the Hellfire of up to 170,000 IOPS and 185,000 IOPS respectively.

With our IOMeter test we couldn’t get close to the maximum quoted figure for writes, the tested drive producing 148,534 IOPS but when it came to reads, the drive sailed past the official figure, giving a total of 200,720 IOPS.
