CrystalDiskMark is a disk benchmark software.


Key Features:-


* Sequential reads/writes
* Random 4KB/512KB reads/writes

* internationalization (i18n)


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.

Our last synthetic test before we get to the real world tasks. Here we are looking for 4K speeds and 4K at 4 and 32 Queue Depths with NCQ. Here we see the HighPoint RocketRAID with two C300 256GB drives dominating the 4K 32QD test and taking a lead in the 4K 4QD.

The HighPoint / Crucial combo again takes a strong lead when multiple instructions are sent, but in a single 4K write the Intel SandForce combo has a bit of an advantage. Now that we have the synthetics taken care of, we can move onto the real world performance testing.
