HD Tune Pro - Sequential Performance
Version and / or Patch Used: 5.50
The G.Skill Phoenix Blade is like many all-in-one RAID devices, you have the potential to reach very high performance levels, but in order to get there, you need a workload that pushes the device to perform. In this test, we read across all of the user available LBA space in 64KB blocks sequentially. The peak and average sequential read performance at queue depth 1 is higher than a standard 2.5" consumer SSD, but at low queue depths, you won't hit 2000 MB/s.
The QD1 sequential write performance is also higher than a standard SATA consumer SSD. When looking through the charts today, you will want to pay close attention to the performance differences between the OCZ RevoDrive 350 480GB and the Phoenix Blade 480GB. OCZ is the current king of the hill when it comes to all-in-one RAID with a product line that goes back several years. G.Skill wants to push them over the cliff.
HD Tach - Sequential Write Performance after Random Writes
Version and / or Patch Used: 188.8.131.52
After writing to the Phoenix Blade with sequential data and a reasonable amount of random data, we run HD Tach to see the 128KB sequential performance in a real-world environment with TRIM and garbage collection working. These numbers would increase with more than one instance running at a time, but this is what you might expect from a single transfer.
