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.

In CDM we are looking at 4K and 4K Queue Depth performance. Here we see the Inferno running as it should for a SandForce SF-1200 controlled drive with Intel flash. If you are a Patriot fan and saw the Zephyr on our charts, let me point out that the Zephyr is a new product from Patriot, but uses a JMicron controller that does not support NCQ commands.

The 4K write speeds of the Patriot Inferno are also very strong and tell us that the drive is performing as it should.

 

Enough with the synthetic benchmarks; let's take a look at how the Inferno will perform in your system in real world applications.
