Crystal Disk Mark Tests

In a recent announcement the makers of CDM stated that they were making the 1000MB test the default benchmark so we have changed over from the 100MB test and started using the 1000MB test in our reviews.

 

4K files take a very long time to read and write on platter drives. Here we see the 4K read performance of the Nobility NH03 is just over half a megabyte a second. The 4K write speed is twice as fast.
