Intel SSD DC P4510 Enterprise NVMe SSD Review (2TB/8TB)


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 file server profile test, we see similar results to what we have seen in the previous server tests. The 8TB model delivers performance that is close to the Kingston DC P1000 and the 2TB model still shows its strength in the lower and mid QD range.


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 Intel DC P4510 is about on par with the SN100, XC100, and even the Micron 9100 MAX. Intel’s DC P3608 and Kingston’s DCP1000 are the only two that beat it.

    Do you have access to, and are willing to review, the Intel SSD DC P4511 Series in 2TB and 4TB capacity?
    I’m especially interested in their 4K Q1D1 random speeds.

    are these drives good to use on a Mac?
