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 Kingston Solid State Drive.
Performance from the Corsair Force Series 3 120GB is excellent when dealing with compressed data, as shown in the 0x00 0fill test. Incompressible data performance isn’t quite as impressive dropping from 466 MB/s read and 499.8MB/s write to 211 MB/s read and 105.8 MB/s write.
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.
The Corsair Solid State Drive scores very well in ATTO, averaging well over 500 MB/s in both the read and write tests. The large mechanical drive scores around 120 MB/S in both read and write tests, which is much as we would expect.
