Patriot Ignite 480GB 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 until we get to 100% writes, in 10% increments. We believe this will be the next major area SSD manufactures will address after performance consistency.


Sequential Mixed Workload Bandwidth




High mixed workload performance is the next chapter in increasing SSD performance. OCZ made mixed workload performance a priority on Vector 180, but as you can see, Patriot needs to do the same as the Ignite suffers from severe performance loss when the smallest of mix is added.


Sequential 80% Read / 20% Write Bandwidth




The 80% read and 20% write mix is widely regarded as the consumer storage standard. At this load, the Ignite is actually in the upper tier of all the products on the chart today.


Random Mixed Workload Response Time




The random 50% read mix with the Ignite is back down again to the lower-end of the scale.
