Our next test looks at random 2MB transfers instead of sequential, showing what performance might look like during multiple file transfer requests. Moving on to even smaller transfer request sizes, our next section looks at random 4K read and write performance at a queue depth of one, and later moves to expanded queue depth tests. In our expanded 4K random read and write Kingston SVP200S3 480GB SSD, we look how well each drive performed with multithreaded access.


This slowed to Kingston SVP200S3 480GB SSD, IOPS with randomized data. Peak latency times were also excellent, measuring Using CrystalDiskMark with randomized Kingston SVP200S3 480GB SSD, we noted similar read and write speeds as what we found with our incompressible IOMeter testing, although CDM did give slightly higher read speed figures. Our last group of consumer IOMeter synthetic benchmarks looks at mixed-load server profiles including Database, Workstation, File Server, and Webserver. : Kingston SSDNow V+ GB SATA III 6Gb/s " Solid State Drive SVPS3/G: Computers & Accessories.
