128k sequential speed reflects the maximum sequential throughput of the SSD.

 

The Toshiba PX03SN averages 890 MB/s; the PX02SS averages 1,040 MB/s, and the PX02SM averages 812 MB/s.

Latency measurements indicate solid latency during sequential read activity for all three SSDs.

The PX03SN averages 392 MB/s, and the Toshiba PX02SS and PX02SM score slightly over their rated speed at 417 MB/s.

The Toshiba PX03SN and PX02SM suffer variability during heavy mixed sequential workloads. The Toshiba SSDs aren't geared for high sequential write activity, so these results are within expectations.

The PX03SN averages 5.71 watts, well below the eMLC SSDs.
