Samsung SSD 950 PRO 512GB M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD Review


IOMeter Mixed Performance

Our mixed performance test is conducted in the same manner as our sequential tests, but once the drive is conditioned we run our test profile to look at performance in various read/write states. We start the test with 100% reads and then add write data into the mix in 10% increments until we end up with no reads at all in the workload.


The Samsung SSD 950 Pro drive did well in this test and hit a low of 1189 MB/s on the 50% write and 50% read operations in our mixed workload test.


When looking at 4KB Random mixed workload performance Samsung SSD 950 Pro 512GB M.2 SSD starts does really well at 100% read/write loads, but dips down pretty good when you start mixing it up and never recovers. The 950 Pro 512GB drive hit a low of 344 MB/s on the 100% 4KB write test scenario, but keep in mind the low 4K Random write performance we talked about on the previous page.
