Sandisk Ultra 3D & WD Blue 3D 1TB SSD review

First 3D NAND-SSDs of Sandisk and WD tested

By


Iometer: Fileserver / Databaseserver simulation (mixed workloads)

Even though we are testing a consumer SSD, for completeness' sake we also ran the file server and database server simulation workloads, in order to obtain a comprehensive impression of the drives' performance. The chart below shows the results for queue depth 32. Please refer to the test procedure page for a description of these tests.

In the server teststhe WD and Sandisk show pretty much the same performance. In comparison with other SATA-SSDs their performance is not bad at all. 

Fileserver workload

The Fileserver workload consists of 80% read- and 20% write commands.

Database workload

The database workload consists of 67% read- and 33% write commands with a base blocksize of 8 KB.
