CrystalDiskMark is a disk benchmark software.

Note: Crystal Disk Mark 3.0 is not available to the public yet, but the Technical Preview does allow us to test 4K performance at queue depths of 4 and 32 in addition to 1. The current release Crystal Disk Mark only shows us QD 1.

 


Read Tests

At the time we were testing the Vertex 2 Pro we were not using the Technical Preview edition of CDM; because of this we were not able to get the more advanced 4K performance at various queue depths. Here we see the 4K read numbers running in line with the other next generation drives that we have already tested.

 


Write Tests

The 4K write numbers are the highest we have ever seen to date. This should make it so the Vertex 2 Pro blazes through most Windows tests in Vantage.

 

Let's have a look at Vantage and see how the synthetic numbers relate to real world performance.
