Version and / or Patch Used: 5.1.2
CrystalDiskMark is disk benchmark software that allows us to benchmark sequential and 4K random performance with accuracy.
With firmware 2.1, the E7 unleashes incredible sequential read performance. Other than the incredibly hard to obtain Samsung SM961, this is the best sequential read performance we've seen to date. Samsung's 950 Pro can hit 2600 MB/s sequential read, Toshiba's RD400 a little more, but the E7 can achieve over 2800 MB/s sequential read at QD32 in an AIC form factor, the M.2 version, close to 2800 MB/s. 4K random performance is also way up in comparison to FW 1.1.
Anvil Storage Utilities
Version and / or Patch Used: 1.1.0
Anvil's Storage Utilities is a storage benchmark designed to measure the storage performance of SSDs. The Standard Storage Benchmark performs a series of tests; you can run a full test or just the read or write test, or you can run a single test, i.e. 4k QD16.
Scoring OS Disk 75% Full
Anvil's scoring gives a good indication of a drive's overall performance. Typically, we want to see a score of well over 10K with 100% incompressible data for NVMe SSDs. All of the E7's with 2.1 firmware can exceed our performance marker easily. In terms of scoring, the E7's with 2.1 firmware easily outperform Samsung's 950 Pro. The E7 AIC with 2.1 firmware nearly catches Toshiba's RD400 512GB.
We note the huge performance increase over the Zotac Sonix due to pSLC caching and superior firmware. If you own a Sonix, the good news is there will be a forthcoming firmware update that will make the Sonix just as potent.
