do not use dd to benchmark storages, use fio

with a command line like

fio  --size=9G --bs=64k --rw=write --direct=1 --runtime=60
--name=64kwrite --group_reporting | grep bw

inside your mount point

or use the --filename option to point to a block device

from this you will get reliable sequential write info
