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 Sabrent Rocket Q 8TB drive scored 13,007.74 points. The drive topped out at 2,786 MB/s read and 2,626 MB/s write on the sequential performance test with 4MB file sizes. Random 4K QD16 performance hit 172,000 IOPS on read and 259,000 IOPS write.
With an overall score of just over 13,000 points, the Rocket Q 8TB drive came performs well against the rest of the recently tested drives on this AMD X570 platform.
