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

We've only run a few 128GB class drives in our sequential mixed workload test that measures sequential 128K performance with the drives in steady state.

 

Sequential 80% Read / 20% Write Bandwidth

Of the drives we've run through this test, the M6 Pro 128GB did the best. The sample size is very small, but we will expand upon this area in the future.

 

Random Mixed Workload Response Time

We did run the 850 Pro in the random mixed IO test to get a premium product to compare to the M6 Pro in the charts. Both drives performed well in this area where most companies are just now starting to optimize performance.
