AnandTech Storage Bench 2011—Light Workload

Our 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:

    Kingston have the brand image to succeed in this market but their product lack the unique selling point. They are just commodities like their ram sticks. Reply

    Which is exactly the point I was trying to raise. Kingston has a decent image and their distribution system is broad but their products are not unique. They shouldn't have a problem surviving in the market but they won't be able to grab any major marketshare either. Reply

    I don't think their goal is to grab major market share. Its to maintain and secure their current market share. Reply

    Which firmware did the drives have?
    I bought two 120GB ones a week apart.
    The first has 505 and the second 506.
    The 506 is way slower...even at booting Windows.
    I'll post some numbers later...

    The 120GB I have is 505. I don't have the 240GB anymore but I'm pretty confident it's 505 too as I received it a couple of months ago so it's not exactly new. Reply

    Both are on SATA 2

    On the second table - Kingston SSDNow V300 Specifications - performance drops as capacity increases, something that being correct is completely new in terms of SSDs. AFAIK in every SSD the higher capacity ones have the same or greater performance than lower capacity ones (of the same model, of course). C&P mistake? Reply

    Nope, it's not a mistake (unless Kingston's datasheet is wrong):

    The images on page 3 aren't working for me.

    Is there any significant difference in the msachi drivers compared to intel rst? Is it worth installing the intel ones when using an SSD?
