Read Tests

Here we see that the performance increased by a sizable margin with the 1819 firmware. 1918 lowered overall read performance by a small margin, but added onboard garbage collection so you will reach the highest levels of performance faster as regeneration occurs faster from a wear state.

 


Write Tests

The write performance has increased steadily through the firmware revisions. Here we see that the 1916 writes even faster than the 1819.
