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.

In CDM we see the performance of the Rage at different block sizes and queue depths. USB doesn't actually take advantage of native command queuing, so those tests are lost in this review, but we still have 512 and 4K sizes to pick over.

 

The read 512 speed is very good and runs at the sequential speed. The write speeds really take a hit, though. Here we see performance start to drop off rather quickly.
