Sequential Mixed Read / Write Workloads


In this series of tests, we measure mixed workload performance. We start with 100% read and then add data writes to the mix until we get to 100% writes, in 10% increments. We believe this will be the next major area SSD manufactures will address after performance consistency.


Sequential Mixed Workload Bandwidth




Our mixed workload tests show steady state sequential performance at different levels of read and write mixes. These tests are brutal on value focus SSDs and really show how the lower cost drives write performance can drop under intense load.


Sequential 80% Read / 20% Write Bandwidth




Several companies have stated that the 80% read 20% write is the area we should focus on for consumer workloads. The M600 drives are on the lower-end of the scale at this measurement point. We still have yet to test the Crucial M550 in this test, but have it coming up soon in our stack of drives going through the test.


Random Mixed Workload Response Time




Our random mixed IO chart is starting to fill out, but we still have a handful of drives to test. When it comes to random data, the M600 performs really well at all queue depths.
