Optane just manages to edge out the FireCuda 520 for the top spot. Other than that, nothing is close to Seagate's top dog. This is no easy task when you consider that our write transfer is 100GB in size and composed of more than 62,000 files.

Read transfers another story entirely. The FireCuda easily dispatches the Gen3 competitors, just as we would expect to see from hardware with superior technology on board.
