Crystalmark is a useful benchmark to measure theoretical performance levels of hard drives and SSD’s. We are using V3.0 x64.
Next we wanted to try the alternative ‘compressible’ setting called 0x00 fill.
We have included some other SSD tests from previous reviews, in the same system, to give an indication of overall performance.
By using the 0×00 0Fill setting, overall performance is significantly higher, scoring well over 505 MB/s with the read test and just over 496 MB/s in the write test. The overall 4K QD32 write performance is exceptional in this mode, scoring over 375 MB/s. The OCZ Vertex 3 MAX IOPS 240GB drive leads the way with the 4K QD32 read test.
