With the smaller data block size you can get through more Input/Output operations per second (hence the IOPS). Even with such a reasonable variance in results it shouldn't overly affect the actual transfer rate. However, in the read tests the Corsair is the most consistent providing good results in all three data block sizes. The Intel struggles with the smaller 4K blocks, but makes it up with the performance in the 32K block size, giving a pretty big 5548 IOPS.
Write testing is much closer between the drives. Indeed you'd struggle to separate them in pure number terms, let alone the realities of daily use.
