Trace Testing – SPECworkstation 3

Like PCMark 8, SPECworkstation 3 is a trace-based benchmark, but it is designed to push the system harder by measuring workstation performance in professional applications. The full suite consists of more than 30 workloads, but we've opted to only run the storage benchmark which uses only 15 of them and categorizes the results into 5 market segments for scoring: Media & Entertainment, Product Development, Life Sciences, Energy, and General Operations.

Under heavier prosumer workloads, the FireCuda 520 delivered similar results to the Force MP600 and scored third place overall. It completed the test just slightly faster than the 970 PRO, or almost three times faster than an entry-level SATA or NVMe SSD. And, it shaved hours off the time an HDD requires to complete the same workload.

Seagate’s FireCuda 520 achieved peak sequential performance of about 5.0/4.3 GBps read/write in iometer, leaving it in a league of its own with the MP600. Random performance at QD1 was very respectable, and response times were very good, too, meaning the drive is plenty snappy. And, while meaningless for consumer tasks and even most prosumer workloads, its peak random performance hits 604,000/544,000 read/write IOPS.

Transfer Rates – DiskBench

We use the DiskBench storage benchmarking tool to test file transfer performance with our own custom 50GB block of data. Our data set includes 31,227 files of various types, like pictures, PDFs, and videos. We copy the files to a new folder and then follow up with a reading test of a newly-written 6.5 GB file.

Seagate’s FireCuda 520 scored very well during both the 50GB copy and 6.5GB read tests. With copy performance that is nearly as strong as the Intel Optane 905P’s and one of the fastest sequential read results yet, the FireCuda 520 is among the fastest drives. 

Sustained Sequential Write Performance & Temperature

Official write specifications are only part of the performance picture. Most SSD makers implement a write cache, which is a fast area of (usually) pseudo-SLC programmed flash that absorbs incoming data. Sustained write speeds can suffer tremendously once the workload spills outside of the cache and into the «native» TLC or QLC flash. We use iometer to hammer the SSD with sequential writes for 15 minutes to measure both the size of the write cache and performance after the cache is saturated. We also monitor cache recovery via multiple idle rounds.  

When possible, we also log the temperature of the drive via the S.M.A.R.T. data to see when (or if) thermal throttling kicks in and how it impacts performance. Bear in mind that results will vary based on the workload and ambient air temperature.

Seagate’s FireCuda 520 absorbed nearly 370GB of data before its write performance tanked. Once the pSLC cache is full, the write speed fell to an average of 600 MBps. After letting it idle for a bit, the cache should mostly recover. After 30 seconds, the drive recovered 16-20GB, and after just a minute, it recovered 63GB of pSLC space. Bear in mind, the cache capacity is dynamic. After an intense write workload, it only recovered 118GB of cache after idling for 5 minutes, and only 100GB after idling up to 30 minutes.

After writing over 300GB of data at once and saturating its bandwidth, the FireCuda 520’s SMART data reported a peak controller temperature of 79C, but we measured about 85C on our infrared thermometer. However, the drive didn’t throttle after writing over 300GB of data at once with no airflow in a 25C environment.

Comparison Products

We put Seagate’s FireCuda 520 up against some of the best SSDs available. With its 3D XPoint memory, Intel’s Optane SSD 905P puts the smackdown on our comparison pool with the lowest response times, but it’s not the fastest at everything. Corsair’s Force MP600 gives it a good run for its money with a similar design as the FireCuda 520, and Samsung’s 970 PRO (Phoenix + 64L MLC V-NAND) and 970 EVO Plus (Phoenix + 9xL TLC V-NAND) are both fierce high-end contenders.

We even threw in the WD Black SN750 (in-house NVMe controller + Kioxia 64L TLC), Adata XPG SX8200 Pro (SM2262EN + Micron 64L TLC), and a Corsair Force MP510 (Phison E12 + Kioxia 64L TLC) for mainstream comparisons. To represent a few of the cheapest NVMe SSDs available, we included the Intel SSD 660p (SM2263EN + Micron 64L QLC) as well as Crucial’s MX500 (SM2258 + Micron 64L TLC). We also include a SATA SSD to compare the bang for your buck. Finally, we added in a 6TB WD Black, a 7200 RPM HDD.

Power Consumption

We use the Quarch HD Programmable Power Module to gain a deeper understanding of power characteristics. Idle power consumption is a very important aspect to consider, especially if you're looking for a new drive for your laptop. Some SSDs can consume watts of power at idle while better-suited ones sip just milliwatts. Average workload power consumption and max consumption are two other aspects of power consumption, but performance-per-watt is more important. A drive might consume more power during any given workload, but accomplishing a task faster allows the drive to drop into an idle state faster, which ultimately saves power.

Power consumption was very similar to most mainstream NVMe SSDs, and even lower than that of the Samsung 970s and Adata XPG SX8200 Pro (on average). The 520 surpassed the WD Black SN750’s efficiency score and pushed ahead into second place with a similar score to the MP600. And, when idling, it consumed very little power. We measured just 64mW when the drive was halfway full of data.
