Sadly, 4KB random performance is only marginally better than the previous-generation controller. The Predator does surpass 10,000 random read IOPS at a queue depth of one, which is a number we often use to separate excellent client performance from good performance. Kingston also manages to extract good numbers from the 88SS9293 processor as queue depth grows.
