128k Sequential Read/Write






128k sequential speed reflects the maximum sequential throughput of the SSD, and is indicative of performance in OLAP, batch processing, streaming, content delivery applications, and backup scenarios.


The 400GB 845DC PRO leads again with an average of 495 MB/s at 256 OIO, mirrored by the 400GB 845DC PRO with 495 MB/s. The Micron M500DC features the lowest sequential performance specifications of the lineup, and averages 417 MB/s, while the Intel DC S3700 delivers an average of 474 MB/s.






Once again, the 400GB 845DC PRO results hide behind the 800GB model, with both Samsung offerings providing impressive IOPS-to-latency ratios.




Sequential write workload performance is important in caching, replication tasks, and database logging. The 400GB 845DC PRO averages 472 MB/s, and the 800GB 845DC PRO provides 470 MB/s. The M500DC averages 388 MB/s, and the DC S3700 scores 360 MB/s.






Both 845DC PRO models deliver the lowest latency, and highest performance during the measurement window.




The 800GB 845DC PRO exhibits an excellent performance gain in the middle range of our mixed sequential testing, even outpacing its smaller 400GB brother by a large margin.




The 400GB 845DC PRO leads the rest of the field with an amazing 2.85 watts, the 800GB 845DC PRO averages an equally impressive 3.02 watts, the M500DC averages 5.24 watts, and the DC S3700 averages 4.28 watts.




The 400GB 845DC PRO easily wins this test with 165 MB/s per watt. The 800GB 845DC pro averages 155 MB/s per watt, the M500DC averages 73 MB/s per watt, and the DC S3700 averages 82 MB/s per watt.
