Intel Core i7 3820 and ASrock Extreme4-M review

Crystalmark is a useful benchmark to measure theoretical performance levels of hard drives and SSD’s. We are using V3.0.1 x64.


Performance figures are as good as we have seen from the Pyro 240GB SE SSD, scoring around 500 MB/s in both the sequential read and write tests. 4K performance is brilliant.

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.

Strong performance from the ASRock motherboard, scoring 560 MB/S in the sequential read test and around 530 MB/s in the sequential write test. As good as we have seen from this particular drive.
