Numbers with 0 context don't mean much, if at all.

Our writes are generally quite fast, I think at the moment some
improvements can be made at the client level. I did some tests last
year and I could get better throughput with the asynchbase client
compared to the normal Java client because the former has call queues
per region server. Both tests were using the same region servers,
uploading the same data set.
