We perform all testing with the test subject running as our system (OS) disk filled 50% with data. We test this way because we want to accurately simulate the most common use-case scenario. We do not believe that testing an empty secondary device tells the whole story and therefore we consider such testing to be inherently flawed.
Sequential performance is pretty much on-par with factory specifications. Random read performance at QD1 looks good, but like we stated earlier the M9P+ doesn't dazzle much in terms of synthetic testing.

We like to focus in on overall read score, as it typically illustrates how a drive performs in relation to its competition. In terms of read scoring, the M9P+ delivers above average performance. Here again, we really have no indication of what the M9P+ is really made of.
We don't place any importance on max IOPS, we are just showing what the drive can deliver while running in our test-state. We can exceed factory specs for max random read performance but cannot quite hit factory specs for max random write.
