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.

The 4K reads on the OWC Mercury are very fast and when it comes to QD32 the Mercury is only outperformed by the Crucial C300.

The 4K write speeds coming from the OWC Mercury are incredible when compared to the Indilinx Barefoot drives. It is no wonder why drive manufacturers found the need to quickly reduce the asking price for Barefoot drives.
