OCZ Octane 1.13 Firmware Update: Improving 4KB Random Write Performanceby Anand Lal Shimpi on February 9, 2012 11:21 PM 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:

Our lighter workload actually showed more of a performance drop for the 512GB drive, while the 128GB drive's performance remained unchanged.
