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.

Here we see good scaling of the queue depths, but solid state drives are kicking around data at 4K at much higher rates.

The 4K write numbers shown on the VR200M are higher than the previous generation VelociRaptor.
