IOMeter is another open-source synthetic benchmarking tool which is able to simulate the various loads placed on the 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 the manufacturer’s quoted ratings. We do test all drives in exactly the same way, so the results are directly comparable.
Random performance is quoted as up to 98,000 IOPS and 88,000 IOPS for read and writes respectively at QD32. We couldn’t quite get to the maximum figures with the review drive producing figures of 94,003 IOPS and 83,058 IOPS for read and writes respectively at a QD of 32.
