Kingston DCP1000 Enterprise NVMe SSD Review (1.6TB)
     Tue, May 30 2017 | 4:03P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Kingston DCP1000 is a total beast. It is an IOPS spewing monster that, when utilized to its full potential, can deliver more than enough performance for the vast majority of adopters. Move over Intel DC P3608, we have a new performance king! In today’s testing, it was able to sustain sequential read and write speeds of 7GB/s and 6GB/s, respectively! Not only that, but it is able to deliver over 1.1million IOPS with 4KB random read performance and over 180K for write. During the server workloads, it beat out most of the test pool, except for the Micron 9100 MAX during the more write heavy workloads at higher QDs.

Intel Optane Memory Tested As Boot Drive, Secondary and RAID 0
     Wed, May 17 2017 | 4:01P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we covered the Intel Optane Memory Series launch last month the focus was entirely on the drive from a caching perspective as that is the point of the product. We ended up with some angry e-mails and comments on social media about why we didn't test the raw performance of the drive and even test it as a boot drive. We don't see too many people buying the 32GB model as a boot drives due to the $76 price point, but we were curious how an Intel Optane Memory module would perform as a primary boot drive, a secondary drive and then as a RAID 0 array with two of them. We managed to get our hands on a second Intel Optane Memory Module 32GB, so we fired up our storage test platform and gave it a quick look.
