Streaming Read Performance And Efficiency
The following test works like the workstation I/O efficiency test, but applying a sequential read profile that utilizes 64, 128 and 256 kB blocks. As expected, it’s the MLC-based flash drives that mostly dominate this benchmark, due to their high sequential throughput:
The MLC drives (Crucial, Super Talent) are also the ones that show the highest average power requirement when working at maximum throughput.
Once again, the balanced SLC flash SSDs by Samsung and OCZ dominate the benchmark, as they combine high performance (though not maximum performance) with impressive power efficiency.
