TurboWrite evidently delivers healthy sequential read and write speeds, but CystalDiskMark's 4K QD32 benchmark proves to be more of a challenge. TurboWrite is optimised for a queue depth of one and isn't nearly as helpful when the drive is bombarded with small transfers. Though, not to worry, turn-on RAPID Mode and performance goes through the roof.
