Crystalmark is a useful benchmark to measure theoretical performance levels of hard drives and SSD’s. We are using V3.0 x64. We use this program to test the onboard Solid State Drive.
As we mentioned earlier in the review, OCUK are meant to ship a 240GB OCZ Agility 3 drive with their Prodigy Arctic Gaming system, but for some reason we received a 128GB Vertex 4 – which is faster, but obviously half the capacity.
The results below therefore are published with this caveat.
These scores are good, averaging around 450 MB/s and 413 MB/s in the sequential read and write test respectively.
The ATTO Disk Benchmark performance measurement tool is compatible with Microsoft Windows. Measure your storage systems performance with various transfer sizes and test lengths for reads and writes. Several options are available to customize your performance measurement including queue depth, overlapped I/O and even a comparison mode with the option to run continuously. Use ATTO Disk Benchmark to test any manufacturers RAID controllers, storage controllers, host adapters, hard drives and SSD drives and notice that ATTO products will consistently provide the highest level of performance to your storage.
These scores are good, if a little inconsistent throughout, with variance between sizes. As we said however, this smaller Solid State Drive is not supplied if you buy this system direct from OCUK.
