Crystalmark is a useful benchmark to measure theoretical performance levels of hard drives and SSD’s. We are using V3.0.3.
The SX950 handles writing small files at deepish queue depths very well, much better than its read performance. It’s the same story at a queue depth of 1 as well. Looking at the two benchmark results screens it appears the Silicon Motion SM2258 controller doesn’t care what type of data it’s being asked to work with.
