    I'd expect that nilfs continues to win postmark. Btrfs splits data and
    metadata into different parts of the disk, so at best btrfs is going to
    produce two streams of writes into the SSD while nilfs is doing one.
    Most consumer ssds still benefit from huge writes, and so nilfs is
    pretty optimal in that case.

    The main benefit of the split for btrfs is being able to have different
    duplication policies for metadata and data, and faster fsck times
    because the metadata is more compact. Over time that may prove less
    relevant on SSD, and changing it in btrfs is just flipping a few bits
    during allocation.
