IOMeter - Sequential Performance with QD

Sequential read for the 5TB was quite impressive, showing a peak speed of 233 MB/s at QD32.

Moving over to sequential write, we found the performance of the 5TB to drop off. Here we reached a maximum of 198 MB/s.

Read latency for the 5TB drive was very respectable, matching the 6TB across the scale.

Write latency was just above the 6TB model in sequential at 20ms at QD32.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Tyler Bernath

Growing up in a small farm town in northern Ohio, technology was never around unless it was in a tractor. At the early age of nine years old, my parents brought home our very first PC and I was instantly hooked and quickly learned what it meant to format a hard drive, spending many nights reinstalling Windows 95 as my parents slept. As I grew up, many things changed around me, but my love and enthusiast nature always kept my PC at my side. Eager to get deeper into technology, I started reviewing products.
