There is a major drop in performance during the second SteadyState run, the drive falling from 432MB/s down to 134MB/s with a major corresponding peak in latency. However, the drive does quickly recover back to 434MB/s.
The drive certainly handles the Battlefield 3 trace a lot more efficiently than the World of Warcraft one, although the recovery performance from the latter is very good.
