IOMeter is another open-source synthetic benchmarking tool that is able to simulate the various loads placed on the hard drive and solid-state drive technology. There are many ways to measure the IOPS performance of a Solid State Drive, so our results will sometimes differ from the manufacturer’s quoted ratings. We do test all drives in exactly the same way, so the results are directly comparable.
128KB Sequential Read / Write setup.
Transfer Request Size: 128KB Span: 8GB Thread(s): 1, Outstanding I/O: 1-32 Test Run: 10 minutes per test
With our own Sequential testing, we could confirm the 7,400MB/s official maximum with a test result of 7,464.95MB/s. The write score of 6,772.1MB/s was a little shy of the official 6,800MB/s.
128KB Sequential Read Performance v QD compared.
In the Sequential read tests, the Viper VP4300 is the fastest Gen4 drive we've seen so far at QD1. At QDs 2 and 4, it drops down the chart but it's back on top of the chart with the QD32 result.
128KB Sequential Write Performance v QD compared.
As with the Sequential read results, at QD1 the Viper VP4300 is the fastest drive we've seen up till now. The performance in comparison to the drives around it drops in QD2 but recovers so that in the QD4 and QD32 tests it is only beaten by the 4TB Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus.
