Kingston DCP1000 Enterprise NVMe SSD Review (1.6TB) – 7GB/s & 1 Mil IOPS in a Single HHHL SSD


Our last set of profiles include both File Server and Web Server workloads. As mentioned before the last hour of preconditioning, the average IOPS, and average latency for each QD is graphed below.

The File Server profile is based on an 80% read/20% write mix. It’s made up of block sizes from 512 to 64K, each making up a different percentage of the access pattern. The pattern is: 512 bytes=10%, 1k=5%, 2k=5%, 4k=60%, 8k=2%, 16k=4%, 32k=4%, 64k=10%.

In the server profile test, the Kingston DCP1000 maintained an average latency of under 2ms with some fluctuation up to about 3.5ms. Form QD 1-32 it, again, beats the competition in the test pool. Beyond the only the Micron 9100 MAX stands on its own against it thanks to it being a heavy write workload oriented SSD.

The Web Server profile is similar to the File Server profile, but has some additional 128K and 512K accesses thrown in for good measure. Additionally, the profile is 100% reads.

Finally, during the web server profile, we see that the Kingston DCP1000 once again is a force to be reckoned with. It dominates in this pure read workload and delivers more IOPS per QD than any other drive we have tested before. It averages 400K IOPS at QD256, which is over 150K IOPS more than the Intel DC P3608 at QD256.
