The other drives I had handy for doing a fresh Linux solid-state drive benchmarking comparison were:

Western Digital WD10EARS-00M 1TB - A traditional SATA 3.0 HDD with 1TB capacity and 64MB cache for reference, if you are still living in an HDD world.

ADATA SU700 120GB - A lower-end SATA 3.0 SSD.

Crucial CT525MX3 525GB - A moderate SATA 3.0 SSD with half TB capacity.

Intel SSDSC2BW12 120GB - An Intel 535 series SATA 3.0 SSD with MLC memory.

Corsair Force MP500 120GB - A 120GB Corsair NVMe M.2 solid-state drive.

Samsung 950 PRO 256GB 256GB - The Samsung 950 PRO M.2 NVMe SSD with 256GB capacity.

Intel SSDPEKKW256G7 256GB - The previous-generation Intel 256GB 600p NVMe SSD.

Intel SSDPEKKW256G8 256GB - This is the 256GB Intel 760p NVMe SSD being tested for this article.

Intel SSDPE21D280GA 280GB - The flagship SSD Optane 900p SSD. For this test system it was using a Funtin U.2 NVMe SSD to PCI-E adapter.

All of this testing was done using an Intel Core i9 7980XE test box with ASUS PRIME X299-A Motherboard and 16GB of DDR4-3200 memory. The test system was using an Ubuntu 18.04 x86_64 daily snapshot with the Linux 4.13 kernel and each drive was freshly formatted to using an EXT4 file-system. The Ubuntu default kernel uses no I/O scheduler with NVMe storage while the SATA 3.0 HDD/SSDs default to CFQ.

All of these Linux disk drive benchmarks were carried out in a fully-automated and reproducible manner using the open-source Phoronix Test Suite benchmarking software.
