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.

Looks like I grabbed this screenshot before the run was fully complete.

It's most unusual to see 4K QD4 read performance getting a boost from RAID. I've benched probably 50 or more different SATA III arrays and never seen this before.

It's hard to believe the EVO has TLC NAND under the hood. Like we saw with our Anvil's testing, our EVO array is running full speed at 4K QD1 writes.
