ioXtreme PCI Express SSDs Anticipate SATA 6 Gb/s Performance

Test Details And Setup

We ran the following cycle on the ioXtreme drives:

  • Full h2benchw test run (throughput)
  • Drive format with NTFS
  • PCMark Vantage test run
  • IOMeter (database, fileserver, web server, workstation, 4K test, streaming test)
  • 30 minutes idle
  • PCMark Vantage test run
  • IOMeter (database, fileserver, web server, workstation, 4K test, streaming test)
  • Delete NTFS volume
  • Full h2benchw test run (throughput)

We took the results from the first and second result sets. You will find these on the benchmark charts marked as “fresh” (first benchmark run) and “used.” The latter represents the second benchmark run and means that the drive may show degraded performance.
