Even with the VPN100 running as our system disk and filled 50% with data, we can exceed Patriot's factory specifications of 3,450 MB/s sequential read and 3,000 MB/s sequential write. We also note the 4K random write of 276 MB/s as it is quite impressive.

When evaluating Anvil results, our focus is total read score. The VPN100 scores just below Samsung's EVO Plus which is quite impressive when you consider that the EVO Plus will cost you about $80 bucks more.

We don't consider max IOPS to be an important performance metric, we are just showing what the drive is capable of in our test state. We are easily able to exceed Patriots factory spec of 700K random write. However, we are unable to reach 700K random read factory spec due to our test subject's 50% filled state.
