Intel SSD 520 Review: Cherryville Brings Reliability to SandForceby Anand Lal Shimpi on February 6, 2012 11:00 AM EST
AnandTech Storage Bench 2011 - Light Workload
Our new light workload actually has more write operations than read operations. The split is as follows: 372,630 reads and 459,709 writes. The relatively close read/write ratio does better mimic a typical light workload (although even lighter workloads would be far more read centric).
The I/O breakdown is similar to the heavy workload at small IOs, however you'll notice that there are far fewer large IO transfers:

The stock SF-2281 firmware gives Kingston the edge in our light workoad test, but Intel's SSD 520 is close behind.
