I picked up what some claim is the fastest of the current SSD drives this week, the Memoright GT. From articles around the net I have seen performance speeds substantially faster then the mtron drive I tested earlier…. so I took the plunge. The first results? luke warm. The random performance ( databases like mysql are all about random performance ) of the drive is better in mixed read/write tests over the mtron, but the mtron blew it away in random read performance. This are are my first pass tests, so I may have something wrong … so take them with a grain of salt:
|Req Per Second|
|rnd read/write||1 Raptor||1 Mtron||1 memoright|
The split tests were higher in all but 1, but the random read alone was 5x slower! more later.
