8k Random Read/Write






Many server workloads rely heavily upon 8k performance, and we include this as a standard with each evaluation. Many of our server workloads also test 8k performance with various mixed read/write distributions.


The average 8K random read speed of the 845DC PRO is 51,584 IOPS, the 845DC EVO actually leads with 52,731 IOPS, the Intel DC S3700 measures 45,423 IOPS, and the Micron M500DC scores 48,034 IOPS at 256 OIO. The 845DC family continues to deliver impressive read speed.






All four SSDs exhibit a tight latency range during the 8K random read test, and a smaller variance between results compared to the 4k testing.




The M500DC takes the lead with an average of 23,852 IOPS at 256 OIO. However, this is a bit misleading; the 845DC PRO has a much tighter performance profile, and leads the majority of the test. The DC S3700 delivers a consistent average of 17,263 IOPS. The 845DC EVO scores last with 7,112 IOPS. We give the 845DC PRO the overall lead in this test, but the M500DC is also fantastic, and beats the DC S3700 at a much lower price point.






The 845DC PRO and M500DC separate themselves from the pack with great latency performance, delivering roughly 24,000 IOPS at 5ms.




The 845DC PRO delivers solid performance in this test. It leads the majority of read/write mixtures with a nice, consistent distribution.




Power consumption for the 845DC PRO averages an outstanding 3.04 watts, the 845DC EVO averages 3.54 watts, the M500DC averages 4.77 watts, and the DC S3700 averages 3.96 watts.




The 845DC PRO leads again with 7,680 IOPS per watt, the M500DC averages 4,877 IOPS per watt, the 845DC EVO averages 1,994 IOPS, and the DC S3700 averages 4,328 IOPS per watt.
