CrystalDiskMark is a useful benchmark to measure theoretical performance levels of hard drives and SSD’s. We are using V3.0.3.
WD’s Blue 3D NAND shows good performance at deep queue depths. Its performance in the CrystalDiskMark test puts it straight in at number three in the chart. Looking at both benchmark result screens, the controller has no real preference on the type of data it’s asked to handle.
