Performance in Intel IOMeter
Sequential Read & Write Patterns
As usual, we will start our session with the synthetic IOMeter benchmark measuring linear read and write speeds. This pattern allows measuring the drives’ sequential read and write speed on data blocks of different size (from 0.5 to 1024KB).
To make it easier for you to read the charts we will highlight the today’s four testing participants with read color.
The linear read speed graphs you see on the first chart indicate that our testing participants didn’t set any speed records. Nevertheless, we have every right to admit that RB15, PD3 and PD14 flash drives perform at a very decent level here. The only exception was the PD15 drive that yielded to almost all its opponents in this linear read speed test.
The situation with linear writing is completely different. PD14 and PD15 flash drives stand out here, as their performance is considerably lower than that of most other products. Moreover, we have to draw your attention to the fact that PD14 features very low sequential write speed when working with small data blocks. At the same time, you can see that although PD3 and PB15 cannot really compete with the fastest flash drives in this test, they are not among the outsiders either, their results are more than satisfactory.
