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.

 

Mixed Workload Bandwidth

We first measured mixed workload performance in the XP941 512GB review. Since then we've changed our test method a bit and our displayed results a bit more for readability. Instead of using the scatter chart, we're using the averages to score each section.

 

 

80% Read / 20% Write Bandwidth

Most consumer will want to look at the 80% read, 20% write performance and prosumers should look at the 70/30 and 60/40 results for extreme use. Here we see the 80/20 mix. Oddly enough, the XP941 128GB is a bit faster than the 256GB model.

 

 

Mixed Workload Response Time

The XP941 128GB has lower response time compared to the M6e and XP941 256GB.
