Maxed-Out Performance


We just wanted to briefly show that Optane Memory has even more horsepower under the hood when we run it on a faster OS than Windows 10. Let's once again focus on 4K QD1 random read performance.


Windows Server 2012 R2 running on Z270 with 7700K processor at 5GHz:




4K read = 415.8 MBs is equivalent to 106,445 IOPS




A total read score of 10,369.40 is a new lab record for any single SSD.



Windows Server 2008 R2 running on Z170 with 6700K processor at 4.7GHz:




4K read = 488.0 MBs is equivalent to 124,928 IOPS. This is 7.5x the performance of a 960 Pro running on Server 2008.


Staggering 4K QD1 read performance to say the least.
