Our first test where we read across the flash turned out quite well. The average result was 372MB/s and we peaked at 395MB/s.

Things didn't go as well on the write test. Here we achieved an average speed of just 227MB/s. The peak performance was in line with what we expected to see, but the graph had a lot of variation in it. The wave was all over the place.
