Kioxia Toshiba RC500 500GB SSD Review


The official random write figure for the drive is up to 390,000 IOPS (CrystalDiskMark 6 QD8 Threads 8). With our 4-threaded tests, the peak performance we saw was 129,074 IOPS at QD16, nowhere near the official number. However, as with the random read performance, looking at the test results save file from CrystalDiskMark 6 revealed a QD8 Threads 8 figure of 401,228 IOPS, some 11,228 IOPS faster than the official maximum.
