Patriot Blaze 240GB SSD Review

Sequential Mixed Read / Write Workloads


In this series of tests, we measure mixed workload performance. We start with 100% read, and then add data writes to the mix in 10% increments until we get to 100% writes. We believe this will be the next major area SSD manufacturers will address, after performance consistency.


Sequential Mixed Workload Bandwidth




Working with sequential data in steady state brings the Blaze SSD down to very low performance levels when mixing reads with writes.


Sequential 80% Read / 20% Write Bandwidth




The 80% read with 20% write mix is closer to what consumers work under, although not always in a steady state. As you can see here, the Blaze 240GB performs well under the measurements we've taken on other leading SSDs on the market today.


Random Mixed Workload Response Time




Mixing random reads and writes is also an issue with the Blaze 240GB. The performance is well under other products currently on the market.
