Crystalmark is a useful benchmark to measure theoretical performance levels of hard drives and SSD’s. We are using V3.0.1 x64.
Overall performance of the drive with incompressible data is slightly underwhelming when compared against more expensive counterpart products.
When we enable the alternative ‘compressible’ setting called ’0×00 fill’ the performance increases dramatically, averaging around 465 MB/s seq read and 476 MB/s seq write. Huge increases from the previous results. 4k QD32 write performance also shows huge gains, alongside read and write 512k performance.
Performance against the leading drives is actually very competitive in compressible data mode. Not quite at the same level as the top drives, but reasonably close.
