We pre-condition the drive for 16,000 seconds, or 4.44 hours, receiving performance data every second. We plot this data to observe the test subject's descent into steady-state. We plot both IOPS and Latency. We plot IOPS (represented by blue scatter) in thousands and Latency (represented by orange scatter) in milliseconds.

We observe steady-state for the 2TB model is achieved at 4,000 seconds of preconditioning. Average steady-state write performance at QD256 is approximately 87K IOPS. We observe steady-state for the 8TB model is achieved at 11,000 seconds of preconditioning. Average steady-state write performance at QD256 is approximately 149K IOPS.

With our configuration, we are able to exceed Intel's 4K random write factory specifications. 4K QD1 is arguably the most important random performance metric and this is where the DC P4510 obliterates the contenders in our test pool. At QD1, the DC P4510 is delivering 2-3x the performance of any flash-based NVMe SSD that we've tested to date. This is where it matters most, and this is where Intel's DC P4510 dominates the competition.

Again, the DC P4510 dominates the competition at QD1. In-fact this domination extends all the way up to QD32. This performance confirms that the DC P4510 delivers the best random read performance of any enterprise SSD we've ever tested. The 8TB model holds a slight advantage over the 2TB model at midrange queue depths. The 2TB model holds a slight advantage at QD1-2 and at QD256.

Conclusion (TL;DR): The DC P4510 demonstrates Intel's commitment to low queue depth random performance. The DC P4510 delivers the best low queue depth random performance of any enterprise SSD we've tested to date.
