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 isn’t class leading, however the sequential read performance is superb, especially as this mode is dealing with incompressible data.
We enabled the ‘compressible’ data mode, otherwise known as ‘0x00’. The gains with drive write performance are very noticeable, and the read performance also increases a little further.
Above, some included compares from other leading solid state drives which we have reviewed in recent months.
