Phison E7 NVMe PCIe FW 2.1 SSD Performance Preview

By: Jon Coulter | SSDs in Storage | Posted: Sep 12, 2016 12:00 pm

NOTE: We are providing charts only for these two tests. All drives are running as empty secondary volumes.

 

Iometer – Maximum IOPS

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Iometer 2014

 

We use Iometer to measure high queue depth performance. (No partition one thread-QD32)

 

Max IOPS Read/Write

With our configuration, we are able to easily exceed Phison's factory specifications of 300K/200K IOPS. The E7's with 2.1 firmware deliver higher read/write IOPS than all but the Intel 750 1.2TB.

 

 

 

Iometer – Disk Response & QD1 Performance

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Iometer 2014

 

We use Iometer to measure disk response times. Disk response times are measured at an industry accepted standard of 4K QD1 for both write and read. Each test runs twice for 30 seconds consecutively, with a 5-second ramp-up before each test. We partition the drive/array as a secondary device for this testing.

 

Avg. Read/Write Response at QD1

We note a massive improvement in read response (4K QD1) over 1.1 firmware.
