8k Random Read/Write




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 workloads.


The MG04 exhibits a small lead over the He6 in this test.






The MG04 continues to provide excellent performance and latency in random read workloads.




The Seagate and HGST drives trade places with a pure random write workload, but the Toshiba MG04 remains on top during the test.






The MG04 continues to deliver enhanced latency performance.




The Toshiba MG04SCA500A takes the lead as we mix in more write activity.




The Toshiba MG04 and Seagate Enterprise Capacity are closely matched on power draw during the 4k write workload, while the HGST continues to lead with the lowest power consumption.






The MG04 again matches the He6's efficiency with random write workloads, but the He6 regains the lead with the random read workload.
