Here are the maximum random 4k read and write scores from Iometer, with a queue depth of 32 and executed within an 8GB block. These are the scores that SSD manufacturers like to advertise publicly.

The Crucial M500 480GB SSD easily reaches the promised 80,000 Iops. That's not that impressive for the read test, but it's quite an achievement for writing.
