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.
We use a custom Kitguru configuration for 4k random write to measure performance.
Clearly Patriot have optimised the new Pyro SE 240GB for random write performance as indicated by IOMeter above. In reality, both results are fantastic. Patriot claim the new 240GB Pyro SE drive can deliver a score of 85,000 IOPS with a 4k aligned test.
