Crystalmark is a useful benchmark to measure theoretical performance levels of hard drives and SSD’s. We are using V3.0.1 x64.
4K QD32 performance is quite good, although Sandforce drives don’t score as well when dealing with incompressible data.
We enabled the ‘compressible’ data mode, otherwise known as ’0×00′. Read performance increases a little, and write performance increases by a huge margin, as we would expect.
Above, some included compares from other leading solid state drives which we have reviewed in recent months.
