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.
We use CDM to look at the 4K and 4K Queue Depth performance. Here we see that even the high IOPS firmware drives perform at the same level as the Team SandForce drives. The G.Skill Phoenix sings the same tune until we get to the Queue Depth of 32. Here we see the Phoenix 100GB take a 20MB/s lead on the Vertex 2.
In the CDM write tests we see that the Phoenix runs nearly identical to the Vertex 2.
