Kingston DCP1000 1,6TB review: lightning-fast SSD reaches 7 GB/s

Lightning-fast data center SSD in the spotlight.


Iometer: 4kB random read/write

In the Iometer test, we measure random read speeds of 4 kB data blocks at queue depth of 1 to 32. Especially at QD1, the Kingston SSD has little to prove with its enormous potential of parallel data processing. At QD32, we see that it is almost as fast as the Samsung 960 Pro which is the current unbeaten speed champion in this test.

In the Iometer write test, at QD1 it is not very apparent that the DCP1000 is built of the fastest possible components. From QD16 and onward, it speeds past the Samsung 960 and beats its record at QD32 with a new highest score of 365.133 IOPS.
