128K Sequential Read/Write






The 128K sequential speeds reflect the maximum sequential throughput of the SSD using a realistic file size encountered in an enterprise scenario.


The Intel DC S3500 comes in at an average of 439 MB/s in sequential read speed, falling below the rest of the entrants.




The DC S3500 features the lowest performance in our 128K sequential write testing with an average of 419 MB/s. We also note more variability with this workload than the other SSDs in the test pool.




The Intel DC S3500 continues its pattern of variability in our write percentage testing, but manages to keep up with the closely matched SM843.




The Intel DC S3500 displays a bit of the write variability in our latency results with 71.4% of I/O's at 60-80ms, and 28.5% of I/O's in the 80-100ms range.




The DC S3500 averages 4.72 Watts during sequential write testing.




The Intel DC S3500 provides 88 MB/s per Watt, the lowest average of our test pool.
