HD Tune Pro - Sequential Performance
Version and / or Patch Used: 4.55
Even though the XP941 128GB is a bit slower at sequential reads on paper, in practice, the drive is a little faster on average than the 256GB model and nearly as fast as the 512GB XP941. We averaged a sequential read with 64KB blocks at 932.8 MB/s.
We did notice a large reduction in sequential write performance due to the limited parallelism when writing to the flash.
HD Tach - Sequential Write Performance after Random Writes
Version and / or Patch Used: 184.108.40.206
Here we see the sequential read and write performance after running the sequential and random tests in HD Tune Pro.
The XP941 128GB slows quite a bit when writing data at the same time background activity is taking place. This isn't anything new for Samsung SSDs - the issue dates back before the 830 Series and only addressed recently with the 850 Pro SSD.
