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.
The 4K read performance of the Mushkin Callisto Deluxe appears to be in line with some of the other SandForce SF-1200 based drives we have looked at so far. There also appears to be a slight increase in the 4K QD32 range.
The 4K write speeds are in line with what we were expecting to see.
That concludes our synthetic benchmarks, so 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.
