Plextor M8PeG 512GB M.2 NVMe 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.

IOMeter setup

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.

Plextor quote random 4K read and write performance of the M8Pe(G) at up to 260,000 IOPS for reads and up to 250,000 for writes. With our IOMeter test configuration, we got reads of 204,285 IOPS and writes of 141,922 IOPS which are some way off the official figures but still show the drive to be a powerful performer.
