Kingston DCP1000 NVMe SSD Enthusiast Testing in RAID 0 – 2 Mil IOPS and 14GB/s

IOMETER BENCHMARK VER. 1.1.0

Seeing things as sporadic as they were in the last few tests, we thought it important to close with some IOMeter testing and we were rather surprised.   These aren’t steady state results and nothing more than an effort to see just how high we could get. Enjoy!

REPORT SUMMARY AND FINAL THOUGHTS

Nothing whatsoever needs to be said of performance and scaling when we see the single DCP1000 at 7GB/s jump to 14GB/s when two drives are set up in RAID.  This is exactly the same when we see IOPS jump from 1 million to 2 million.  This is a monster drive and definitely the SSD for those builders looking for an NVMe SSD capable of extreme performance.

In fact, Kingston and Liqid have had such success with the DCP1000 NVMe PCIe 3 SSD that they have set up their own website with a ton more information, interviews and tests at kingston.liqid.com.  Beware though, you just may get hooked!

Not so long ago, we introduced you to what just might be the fastest NVMe storage device on the market right now.  Our tests of the Kingston DCP 1000 1.6TB NVME PCIe 3.0 displayed absolutely incredible performance of  7GB/s and 1 million IOPS for a single drive, and our initial enthusiast report uncovered an amazing design package beneath the surface of the DCP1000. Much like the Intel 910 PCIe SSD review we had done way back in 2012, the DCP1000 is an SSD that consists of four logical drives that are combined in a RAID configuration, with the magic of…

    this is insane…. @intel shame on your optane!
