Solidigm client SSDs are built to perform where the user needs it most which is during Real World Workloads. Whether the application is gaming, content creation, or productivity use, Real World Workloads are extremely fluid involving a mix of read and write activity as well as performing randomly executed tasks that run at low I/O que depths. Solidigm optimizes their drives, through Solidigm Synergy, a unique software stack that accelerates performance in all type of environments.
Real World Client PC Workloads involve a mix of read and write activities which are weighted heavily toward Read cycles that account for 60% of the functions.
Real World Workloads, whether it be from Productivity Applications, Content Creation, or Gaming are predominantly random. Even gaming, which is mainly sequential, still involves a range of mixed use between sequential and random.
Que Depths are the number of I/O requests placed on the drive by the application or workload. High-end applications and workloads such as those found in data center use cases can generate very high que depths or I/0 requests of over 100. Over 90% of individual user applications generate very low que depth or I/O requests generally below 3. Measuring a drives performance at these low que depths and in mixed workloads can show a drives performance in real world use cases
As a drive fills with data, it’s overall performance will decrease. Solidigm designs their drives to ensure consistently high performance throughout the life of the drive meaning that a Solidigm drive fills with data, the performance does not degrade.
