The TRION 100 is exceeding OCZ's max IOPS specifications by 10,000 with both read and write. Read performance continues to be very impressive.

 

 

Iometer - Disk Response

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Iometer 2014

 

We use Iometer to measure disk response times. Disk response times are measured at an industry accepted standard of 4K QD1 for both write and read. Each test runs twice for 30 seconds consecutively, with a 5-second ramp-up before each test. We partition the drive/array as a secondary device for this testing.

Even with an emulated SLC layer, the TRION has high response times.

 

 

DiskBench - Directory Copy

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 2.6.2.0

 

We use DiskBench to time a 28.6GB block (9,882 files in 1,247 folders) composed primarily of incompressible sequential and random data as it's transferred from our DC P3700 PCIe NVME SSD to our test drive. We then read from a 6GB zip file that's part of our 28.6GB data block to determine the test drives read transfer rate. Our system is restarted prior to the read test to clear any cached data, ensuring an accurate test result.

The TRION 100's read transfer rate is excellent but its write transfer rate is painfully low.
