MSI Nightblade Review (Dual SSD, i7 4770K, R9 290X)

Crystalmark is a useful benchmark to measure theoretical performance levels of hard drives and SSD’s. We are using V3.0.1 x64.
Performance of the two drives in RAID 0 is very good, although the sequential write performance is a little disappointing. In real world terms however the system was immensely responsive and programs loaded within a couple of seconds.
ATTO shows some interesting results, the same stellar 1000 MB/s sequential read performance, but quite a variance with write performance. Write performance increases up to 640 MB/s on the 512k write test, but it drops after this, down to 280 MB/s – same as the Crystaldiskmark test.

Lastly, we ran a few checks with AS SSD – a test designed specifically for Solid State drives. The Score of 1,640 was one of the highest we have recorded to date – showing the performance capabilities when dealing with incompressible data.
