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.

The Transcend’s drive performance on Iometer is pretty decent. It’s total I/O for most runs puts it near the top of the pack, but its performance on the 64k streaming writes run was slightly below standard.
