In CDM we are looking at 4K and NCQ performance. The Toshiba / JMicron JM618 doesn't utilize NCQ at all, something we observed with the V100 as well. The V100 offers around half the 4K performance as the V+100 and real world performance will suffer as a result.

Both the V+100 and V100 offer around the same level of 4K write performance, but both once again don't take advantage of NCQ.
