Toshiba OCZ RC100 NVMe SSD: Summary And Conslusion
Performance Summary: The Toshiba OCZ RC100’s performance was a bit of a mixed bag in our tests. Its sequential transfers trailed the other, higher-priced NVMe-based drives across the board – which was to be expected, considering the value-oriented nature of the drive. Access time during writes were also somewhat higher, though reads were more competitive. In the trace-based tests and in terms of 4K transfers, however, the OCZ RC100 remains competitive and responsive. And it’s these tests that are most impactful to the user experience.
