AnandTech Storage Bench - Heavy

Our Heavy storage benchmark is proportionally more write-heavy than The Destroyer, but much shorter overall. The total writes in the Heavy test aren't enough to fill the drive, so performance never drops down to steady state. This test is far more representative of a power user's day to day usage, and is heavily influenced by the drive's peak performance. The Heavy workload test details can be found here. This test is run twice, once on a freshly erased drive and once after filling the drive with sequential writes.

The Patriot Hellfire, in blue, is highlighted as an example of a last-generation Phison E7 drive. Although we didn't test it at the time, the MP500 was based on the same controller and memory.

ATSB - Heavy (Data Rate)

The Corsair Force MP510 cannot match the best-case data rates of the fastest drives using Silicon Motion controllers, but the MP510 does a much better job of maintaining performance even when the drive is full.

ATSB - Heavy (Average Latency)ATSB - Heavy (99th Percentile Latency)

The average and 99th percentile latency scores for the Corair MP510 on the Heavy test are again some of the best we've seen, but the upcoming SM2262EN controller holds on to the top spot—when the test is run on an empty drive.

ATSB - Heavy (Average Read Latency)ATSB - Heavy (Average Write Latency)

The average read latency scores from the MP510 are nothing special among recent high-end drives, but the average write latencies can only be matched by a few other drives.

The 99th percentile read and write latency scores form the MP510 don't stand out much from other high-end drives, but the write scores in particular show very little performance penalty from running the Heavy test on a full drive.

ATSB - Heavy (Power)

The Corsair MP510's total energy consumption during the Heavy test show it is not the most efficient NVMe SSD, but is one of few high-performance drives that approaches the efficiency typical of a good SATA drive.

    I'm keen to think a lot of real-life use cases are bound on small block reading speed. E. g. databases. Reply

    I've been looking to upgrade the drive in my laptop for a while now, and will end up going with this over the 970 Evo. IMO, Samsung needs more serious competitors.

    It also helps that my experience with Corsair SSDs was back in the days of the Neutron GTX. It was a great drive back in the day.
