2x Samsung 980 PRO NVMe M.2 SSD 1 TB in RAID 1 with Intel RST [Intel RST VMD Controller].

Intel Optane Memory and Storage Management setting: cache-mode: read-only: [default]

Intel Optane Memory and Storage Management setting: cache-mode: off:

Both with the NVMe setting:

Strangely the performance doesn't get better with the cache off as it does for AS SSD where the read speed doubles. But it's still over 9000. :)

Hello! I was looking for some performance results of an old SATA 2 drive and found this table. This is amazing! So I had to register and bring some benchmarks. These are the "commercial" names of the drives from the screenshots:
  • Western Digital WD Blue 500 GB 5400 RPM 2.5'' SATA III HDD *
  • Western Digital Scorpio Blue 320GB 5400 RPM 2.5'' SATA 3 HDD *
  • HGST TravelStar Z5K1000 1TB 5400 RPM 2.5'' SATA II HDD
  • Seagate Barracuda 500GB 5400 RPM 2.5'' SATA III HDD *
  • Samsung SpinPoint HM641JI 640GB 5400 RPM 2.5'' SATA II HDD *
  • PNY XLR8 CS3030 1TB NVME 1.3 PCIe 3.0 x4 2280 SSD
The ones that have been connected via USB (mostly all HDD, the ones with an asterisk) have been connected using a USB 3.1 type A port with a SATA III to USB 3.0 connector from a Seagate Expansion carry case. The last 3 (the ones without an asterisk) have been connected to their respective NVME and SATA III ports in the laptop.

I will benchmark some other drives I have hanging around and post as soon as I can.

Edit: just read that it should have been CrystalDiskMark 6.0.2 results. Modified post based on it. Sorry!

I literally have one (PNY CS3030 1TB PCIe Gen 3, don't have PCIe Gen 4 in my laptop so is the fastest I can use), is in the first reply. I'm just benchmarking several drives I have for archive purposes.

Are those default/NVME SSD settings or custom settings? On my 500GB NVMe drive the default and NVMe SSD settings are not like those?
I am checking to see if the default settings are different for 1TB NVMe?

the settings have to match what the defaults were back when this benchmark started, so very customized yes.

How come the RND4k Q1T1 read is so much slower than the 512gb SN770 only a few posts above? that gets 93 in that section.

Yet, it is the cheaper model of the same line up... I don't understand, isn't RND4k Q1T1 read one of the more important numbers? So logic says, the SN850 should score higher there than the SN770... I am so confused...

Less nand to do randoms on than 1TB more nand slower the speed because greater amount of space to do randoms over require slightly more time to do.
can alo come down to the controller used and the firmware optimisations done for each drive
