Over to sequential performance, the 8TB Red matched the performance seen with the 4TB Red Pro and 6TB Red, near 180 MB/s.

Sequential write was more of the same song and dance with the 8TB staying right with the two previous Red models.

Read latency started out a near 0 at 0.7ms and peaked at 23ms at QD32.
