Crystalmark is a useful benchmark to measure theoretical performance levels of hard drives and SSD’s. We are using V3.0 x64.
The Pyro SE 240GB drive delivers some great results with the ASRock Extreme9 motherboard, with sequential speeds around 480 MB/s read and 470MB/s write. 4K and 4K QD32 performance is very strong.
The ATTO Disk Benchmark performance measurement tool is compatible with Microsoft Windows. Measure your storage systems performance with various transfer sizes and test lengths for reads and writes. Several options are available to customize your performance measurement including queue depth, overlapped I/O and even a comparison mode with the option to run continuously. Use ATTO Disk Benchmark to test any manufacturers RAID controllers, storage controllers, host adapters, hard drives and SSD drives and notice that ATTO products will consistently provide the highest level of performance to your storage.
As we hoped, ATTO mirrors the results from CrystalDiskMark, averaging around 530 MB/s sequential read and 510 MB/s sequential write respectively.ASRock X79 Extreme9 Motherboard Review,
