Real World File Transfer
Let’s see how real-world performance was when writing a movie folder containing seven 1080P movies over to the SSD. For this test, we are going to measure write performance by copying a 30.6GB folder of movies off from the drive being tested back to itself to see how performance looks. This action is basically a long linear sequential write operation and punishes the SLC Cache on many drives.
When it comes to writing a bunch of data to the drive without any breaks, the Corsair MP600 CORE 1TB drive finished with an average speed of 871.4 MB/s and that put it in the middle of the performance chart. This performance result is respectable for a 1TB QLC NAND powered drive.
Custom Read File Test
The next custom test that we are going to do is how fast each drive can read a compressed folder. For this we backed up a Steam copy of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds for the test file. The compressed folder contains 59 titles and is 27.3 GB (29,409,916,771 bytes) in size.
When it comes to reading a compressed Steam Backup file the Corsair MP600 CORE 1TB SSD finished the task at a speed of 1878 MB/s! The read performance numbers on the MP600 CORE are good as QLC NAND Flash is great at reads and so is the Phison E16 PCIe Gen4 controller.
