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.

When looking at the 4K results we have to consider the newer firmware on the FTM-25 and also the slower programming used by MemoRight. SandForce charges a fee to enable the 'High IOPS' feature and MemoRight didn't choose to enable the function. If it was enabled the FTM-25 would perform a little better at the 4K block size.

The lack of High IOPS in 4K writes didn't keep the MemoRight FTM-25 down here. In this test we see the FTM-25 running with the Vertex 2 240GB drive and even outperforming it in some tests.
