Benchmarks: Atto Disk Benchmark
First, we have the Kingston SSDNow V+ 180 64GB's read performance in the Atto Disk Benchmark. The 1K and 2K performance was comparable to the SSDNow V Series 64GB with a throughput of 18MB/s and 32MB/s.
However, as we reached the 8K test, the SSDNow V+ 180 64GB was 25% slower than the SSDNow V Series 64GB. The SSDNow V Series 64GB also remained faster for the 32K and 128K tests. Kingston claims a read throughput of 230MB/s with the SSDNow V+ 180 64GB and we actually reached 226MB/s when running the 128K test.
Despite its average read performance, the Kingston SSDNow V+ 180 64GB has solid writes. Here the SSDNow V+ 180 64GB was faster than the SSDNow V Series 64GB from the word go. In fact, once we got to the 8K test and above it was much faster. The SSDNow V+ 180 64GB provides 2.5 times more bandwidth than the SSDNow V Series 64GB when testing with the 128K sample data. Moreover, Kingston claims a write throughput of 180MB/s while we actually achieved 194MB/s.
