Iometer – Maximum IOPS

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Iometer 2014

 

We use Iometer to measure high queue depth performance. (No Partition)

 

Max IOPS Read

Max IOPS Write

With our configuration, we are easily able to outperform OCZ's specification of 90/54K maximum 4K read/write IOPS.

 

 

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.

Avg. Read Response

Response times are as expected for a TLC SSD. The TRION 150 again outperforms the TRION 100.

 

 

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.

Read Transfer Rate

This is a big win for OCZ because it shows that they were able to achieve exactly what they set out to do with the TRION 150. Direct to die write is paying dividends in the form of vastly improved sustained write transfer rates. The TRION 150 smokes the competition in this TLC crippling test.
