Sequential 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 in 10% increments until we get to 100% writes. We believe this will be the next major area SSD manufacturers will address, after performance consistency.

 

Sequential Mixed Workload Bandwidth

The mixed workload results in a steady state speak for themselves. From here on out, everything goes downhill with the S60.

 

Sequential 80% Read / 20% Write Bandwidth

Random Mixed Workload Response Time

The mixed read / write random performance is nothing short of awful with the Silicon Power S60. The drive is still faster than a hard drive, but this isn't a hard drive review.
