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:

Performance in our Light suite is as strong as it is in the Heavy suite; the SSD 335 is again faster than the 520 and 330.

    If Samsung continues to produce the 830 as a value drive compared to the 840, I think Intel will have trouble selling these. I don't see any advantage. Reply

    Samsung is phasing out the SSD 830 by the end of November, so it won't be available much longer. Reply

    They're only cheap now to get rid of them; once they're out of the channel people can't point to the old model discount for why the new one is too expensive.

    If you want a bigger SSD, now's the time to buy the 830 you've been lusting over.

    You can shove your iMac in your rear where the sun does not shine. Reply

    Samsung's drivers are flaky if hit hard, and of course less reliable. These Intel drives with Sandforce controllers aren't as good as Intel controllers, but still...Micron/Crucial and Intel are the best choices. Reply
