Sequential Read/Write Speed

Similar to our other Enterprise Iometer tests, queue depths are much higher in our sequential benchmarks. To measure sequential performance I ran a 1 minute long 128KB sequential test over the entire span of the drive at a queue depth of 32. The results reported are in average MB/s over the entire test length.

Enterprise Iometer - 128KB Sequential Read

As Intel's first 6Gbps controller, there's a huge improvement in sequential IO compared to the outgoing 710. There are definitely still drives that put up beter performance numbers if we look at all of our consumer test data (mainly when it comes to sequential write performance), but Intel is at least in the realm of top performers and does very well compared to many current enterprise SSDs.

    Looks like a nice enterprise drive. Will be interesting to see how reliable the new controller is in the "real world."

    For my consumer money...still gotta go with Samsung right now.

    Looks like a nice workstation drive as well. With that kind of write endurance, it should be able to handle daily multi-gigabyte content syncs. Reply

    Umm, with that write endurance it should be able to handle daily multi-TERAbyte syncs, seeing as it is rated at 10x capacity/day for 5 years. Reply

    I watched the interview, and saw all 3 of the braggarts spew their personal fantasies and pride talk, then came here to take a look, and I'm not impressed.
    I do wonder how people do that.

    "I had to pull Micron's P400e out of this graph because it's worst case latency was too high to be used without a logarithmic scale. "

    Could you add the value to the text then?

    Right... so we got that covered. :)
    Now we're eagerly awaiting the next milestone towards the tech singularity.
