High-Performance PCIe SSD

Published by Andrea on

Needing more space and speed on my home PC, it runs a VMware lab (Workstation 11.2), HP Z600 with dual Xeon E5520 24GB of RAM, SSD Hard Drive SATA 256GB and a 1TB Seagate, I purchased a Kingston 480GB M.2 SSD PCIe card.

I chose this card because it is the most efficient and relatively inexpensive card that does not have problems booting from a not UEFI BIOS.

HyperX-PredatorFirst of all, I decided to check the performance of the new entry with an IOPS test @ 4K, setting 100 % read and 100 % sequential in Iometer parameter, the result was well above OCZ SSD disk with about 45K IOPS .

I then tested all three disks in a real lab situation, setting 16 workers with 100% random access to 32K and with 33% writing.
