This testing is just to see what the drive is capable of in an FOB (Fresh Out of Box) state under optimal conditions. We are utilizing Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit for this testing. Same Hardware, just an OS change.
The S10 loves AS SSD. 4K QD1 Read of 14.4K IOPS is the same as we are getting from a 950 Pro NVMe SSD.
We decided to run a quick empty Win 10 AS SSD because we knew it would score even higher.
A higher score for Windows 10 over Server 2008 will only happen with AS SSD because of higher 64 Thread write performance. We wanted to show this score because it's the highest score we've seen for a single SATA SSD.
A 97,000 plus score is about as high as it gets for a SATA SSD.
