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 Samsung Solid State Drive.
The Kingston HyperX 3K SSD scores very well, over 500 MB/s in both sequential read and write tests. The 1TB HDD isn’t the fastest drive we have seen but is perfectly acceptable for storage duties.
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.
Very similar results in ATTO, with the Kingston drive averaging over 500 MB/s in both read and write tests.
