CrystalDiskMark is a disk benchmark software.


Key Features:-


* Sequential reads/writes
* Random 4KB/512KB reads/writes
* Text copy
* Change dialog design
* 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.


Read Tests




In CDM we see that the 4K read of the Phoenix Pro is better than both of the Vertex 2 E drives we tested. This is due to the new firmware that ships with the Phoenix Pro. Once we get to the queue depth tests things start to level out between the three SandForce drives.


Write Tests




The 4K write speeds of the Phoenix Pro are some of the fastest we have tested and the drive holds its own against the Vertex 2 drives on the chart.


That concludes our synthetic benchmarks; let's take a look at the real world tests and see if what we learned from the synthetics carries over to the real world.
