Host control mode wasn't standardized to overcome device mode performance.
Instead, host control mode, entails several advantages comparing to device control mode:
- Allow OEM vendors to have a unified HPB approach, with minor to null performance volatility across different storage vendors
- Flexible and transparent logic which doesn’t requires device firmware changes.
Hence, the discussion of host-control vs device control performance gain is chasing the red herring.
