With latest Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4, the Raspberry Foundation added NVMe SSD support via M.2 (PCIe 2.0) interface. Jeff Geerling tested 3 piece M.2 SSD RAID array which is another example how Compute Module 4 is a milestone in IoT applications.
SSD/eMMC benchmark scores for Compute Module 4
With the debut of Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 and ModBerry 500 CM4 from TECHBASE, another addition came to Industrial Controllers and Edge Automation. New module carried the likelihood to associate NVMe SSD module by means of M.2 slot utilizing PCIe 2.0 interface.
We took our ModBerry 500 CM4 device, utililizing latest Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 and carried two test:
- eMMC built-in standard Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4
- selected NVMe SSD via M.2 slot
Both eMMC and SSD drive perfomed truly well, accomplishing extremely high benchmark score: 5078 for eMMC and unbelivable 13807 for NVM. SSD. For direct correlation, you can check a few tests performed by over 20.000 clients of this benchmark here: https://jamesachambers.com/2020s-fastest-raspberry-pi-4-storage-sd-ssd-benchmarks/?amp
