IOMeter test setup:
4K Sustained Random Write.
Transfer Request Size: 4KB Span: 80GB Thread(s): 4, Outstanding I/O: 1-32 Test Run: 20 minutes per test.
The official Viper VP4300 random write performance is rated the same as the random read's, 800,000 IOPS. As with our random read tests, we couldn't get close to that figure, the best we saw was 350,649 IOPS (QD16). Once again we did a quick test at QD32 using 8 threads and got a result of 536,228.1 IOPS.
4K Random Write v QD Performance compared.
In comparison with other Gen4 drives we've tested, the Viper VP4300 performs the best at QDs 2 (where only Samsung's SSD980 PRO beats it) and 32 where it lies in second place on our results chart, behind the WD Black SN850.
