SOLVED Question about SSD Benchmarking

I have a Samsung 850 EVO 500GB that has performed flawlessly for the past 5 years. Every once in a while, I run the Samsung Magician that came with the drive to see what's up with the drive. So I opened the Performance benchmarking window. There is a screen there called IOPS. Before I ran the benchmark , the "read" was 69,000+; after the test, the "read" was 57,650. There was literally no change for the "write" benchmark that was 11,000+. Is this normal wear and tear ? The program did tell me that the drive is "healthy". Thanks
