The Solidigm P41 Plus 2TB achieved around 318k random reads with this IO_uring test configuration while the P41 Plus 1TB was much lower at 208k, but not all that surprising given that the P41 Plus is focused on affordability for this DRAM-less QLC SSD.

For carrying out 4K random writes with IO_uring measured by FIO, the results weren't all that bad and delivering similar performance to the WD_BLACK SN750 SE 1TB drive.
