Crystalmark is a useful benchmark to measure theoretical performance levels of hard drives and SSD’s. We are using V3.0 x64.
With incompressible data, performance suffers a little, but CrystalDiskMark offers an alternative ‘compressible’ setting called 0×00 fill.
Withe the 0x00 0Fill setting enabled, the test results increase significantly. The 120GB Corsair Force 3 scores in a similar ballpark compared against the Agility 3 240GB, solid results in regards to sequential and 4k performance.
