CrystalDiskMark is disk benchmark software that allows us to benchmark 4K and 4K queue depths with accuracy.

 

Key Features:-

 

* 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.

Besides the fantastic sequential performance, both our array's 4K write performance is stellar! Keep in mind that this isn't some empty, secondary attached array, this is our OS volume and its 75% filled to capacity.

Sequential and QD32 read performance benefit most from RAID 0.

Write performance goes through the roof in comparison to a single drive. Transferring large chunks of data to and from an array is much faster with an array than a single drive. Installing programs from an array is lightning quick.
