Synthetic Testing (Latency & Mixed Accesses) »

Random Access Performance

Our first batch of synthetic tests looks at 4K random IO. We test the drive at various queue depths ranging from 1–128. Besides just random read and random write, we also test a mixed workload that randomly issues a read or write access request with equal probability.



To provide some context, the charts below compare the best results achieved in this scenario for all the drives in the current test group.



Sequential Throughput

Next, we move on to test sequential throughput with a large block size of 512 KB. We again provide a third data point in the form of a mixed workload that randomly issues a read or write access request with equal probability.



The charts below provide comparison data against other drives in the test group.
