CrystalDiskMark is a disk benchmark software that allows us to benchmark 4K and 4K queue depths with accuracy.
* Sequential reads/writes
* Random 4KB/512KB reads/writes
* Text copy
* Change dialog design
* internationalization (i18n)
Note: Crystal Disk Mark 3.0 Technical Preview was used for these tests since it offers the ability to measure native command queuing at 4 and 32.
Here we see the sequential read performance in CrystalDiskMark. Even though Vector has a disadvantage from the lower capacity drives, it still manages outperform the other RAID arrays in sequential reads.
OCZ's Vector has the best 4K write performance of any SSD on the market today. The RAID 0 4K test carries that performance level over.
