This testing is just to see what the drive is capable of in an FOB (Fresh Out of Box) state under optimal conditions which is for the most part how most reviewers run these tests. We are utilizing Windows Server 2012 R2 64-bit for this testing. Same Hardware, just an OS change.
Note the 4K write performance. This is what write-back caching can do. Windows Server delivers vastly superior 4K random performance in comparison to Windows 8-10.
We used Server 2012 for MOP instead of 2008 for Intel RST PCIe arrays because the system must be UEFI booted for Windows to even see an Intel RST (Rapid Storage Technology) created PCIe array. Server 2008, although it performs better than Server 2012, does not UEFI boot.
