Iometer Results (Part 1)

Lastly, we put the drives through the rigorous grind of Iometer, with different workloads and I/O queue depths.  We have chosen to show results from a queue depth of 1 to 5 as this better represents the workloads a typical consumer might face. On the intensive Iometer benchmark, the Samsung SSD 750 Evo was the top performer. While there was little to separate the drives on the 64K Streaming Reads and Streaming Writes workloads, the SSD 750 Evo was clearly the better performing drive on the more intensive File Server and Web Server workloads. As for the SSD 850 Evo, while it was disappointing on the 64K Streaming Reads workload, it picked itself up on the subsequent workloads and was by far the best performing on the File Server and Web Server workloads. The OCZ Trion 150 and Sony SLW-M performed quite similarly on the File Server and Web Server workloads.
