IOMeter - 4K Random Performance with QD

4K random read gives us an idea on how well the 6TB scales with QD. As you can see this drive is a whole new animal when it comes to HDD performance.

With 4K random write, things were a bit odd we started out quite good and then it appears the drives cache was depleted and we lost performance.

 

 

IOMeter - Sequential Performance with QD

Sequential results separated the Desktop HDD from our previous top drive, the WD Black. As you can see the Seagate was able to top 220 MB/s across the QD scale.

Sequential write again had the Desktop HDD rather consistent through QD32.
