In Crystal Disk Mark we are looking at the 4K performance. The ADATA S596 Turbo is able to easily outperform the fastest consumer platter drive, but when it comes to direct competition against SSDs we see that the drive isn't able to run with the Corsair Nova, an Indilinx based drive.

The S586 Turbo is faster than the WD VelociRaptor and the Indilinx Barefoot based Nova at 4K writes, but the similarly priced SandForce drives dominate the S596 Turbo.
