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 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 often vary between the manufacturer’s quoted ratings.
IOPS performance is excellent considering the drive price placement. We didn’t quite achieve the official SK hynix figures – 4KB Random Read: 95,000 IOPS, 4KB Random Write: 85,000 IOPS.
Our results are around 5,000 lower than the official figures, but we would assume these minor differences are due to variances in testing methodology.
