MDD rates sequential performance for the 960GB SBXe at up to 2,500 MB/s read and 2,100 MB/s write based on CrystalDiskMark. Our AMD Zen 2 platform had no issues matching factory spec even with the SBXe running our OS and 50% filled with data. This is about 4x better than what SATA SSDs are serving up.

Additionally, QD1 random performance as measured by CDM is impressive, especially random write where we find the SBXe beating all but the MP600.

A total score of over 15K is impressive when you consider that the SBXe is a 4-channel DRAMless design. Now focusing in on the read score as we like to do, we fine the SBXe coming in just behind Kingston's A2000, but doing FAR better than Intel's popular 660P. Moving over to write scoring, we find the SBXe serving up some excellent burst performance.

We don't place much importance on max random IOPS, we are just showing what the drive can deliver while running in our test-state. We can exceed factory random write specs, but we are not able to match factory max random read specs due to the drive being filled 50% with data.
