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 final synthetic test is CDM and we use it for the advanced 4K and 4K at queue depth tests. Here we see the RunCore Pro V running right with the Vertex 2 in the standard 4K test, but once we start adding commands with NCQ the Pro V starts to break free from most of the other drives.
The 4K at depth write numbers seemed to suffer a bit with the Pro V. Once again, this is a preconditioning issue that we were not able to avoid.
