Random Read

Samsung's 2TB drives benefit from increased parallelism, moving them to the top of the performance charts at low queue depths in our random read test. These are the first SATA-based samples we've seen break 11,000 IOPS without the aid of DRAM cache. At higher queue depths, the 2TB models trail the 1TB drives slightly.
