Yapt (yet another performance test) is a benchmark recommended by a pair of drive manufacturers and was incredibly difficult to locate as it hasn't been updated or used in quite some time.  That doesn't make it irrelevant by any means though, as the benchmark is quite useful.  It creates a test file of about 100 MB in size and runs both random and sequential read and write tests with it while changing the data I/O size in the process.  The results are a good look at overall drive performance.

Despite the overclock, the SSD 730 shows the exact same disagreement with our random write YAPT test, showing a nearly identical output profile. This is likely due to YAPT's workloads not all being 4k aligned. This is not an issue for anyone running on a modern OS / partition.
