Samsung 840 EVO 500GB RAID 0 SSD Report - Benchmarks - CrystalDiskMark

Samsung 840 EVO 500GB RAID 0 SSD Report

Price, capacity, and most of all, performance. The Samsung SSD 840 EVO 500GB has it all, and it gets even better when we RAID a pair of them. (KRX:005930)

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.

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.
