Along with the move to a new platform, we decided to make a change in one of the benchmarks. There’s a relatively new benchmark called Anvil Storage Utilities that is in beta but close to production. It’s a very powerful tool that measures performance through a variety of tests which can be customized.
Benchmark Results: The benchmark results from the most recent build of Anvil SSD Benchmark showed that with 100% compression (incompressible data) that the Micron 5100 MAX 1.92TB SSD had an overall score of 3,326.11 points. The drive topped out at 448.83 MB/s read and 445.99 MB/s write on the sequential performance test with 4MB file sizes. Random 4K QD16 performance hit 47,000 IOPS on read and 46,000 IOPS write.
The overall score on the Micron 5100 MAX 1.92TB drive came in at 3,226, which was indeed a bit behind the three consumer SSDs that we compared it against.
