The random write performance has been improved, in some capacities over double that of the previous specifications, for users looking to push their SSD performance.
For all Octane SATA 6Gb/s models, the improved IOPS made possible by this new firmware allow for greater transactional performance, especially during small file and random access speeds in everyday computing applications.
When compared to the previous revision, random write IOPS performance doubles across nearly all capacities when tested in Iometer 2008:
Model/Old Random Write 4K IOPS (FW v1.12)/
New Random Write 4K IOPS (FW v1.13)
- Octane 128GB/7,700/18,000
- Octane 256GB/12,000/25,000
- Octane 512GB/16,000/26,000
