CrystalDiskMark is a disk benchmark software that allows us to benchmark 4K and 4K queue depths with accuracy.

 

Key Features:-

 

* Sequential reads/writes

* Random 4KB/512KB reads/writes

* Text copy

* Change dialog design

* internationalization (i18n)

 

Note: Crystal Disk Mark 3.0 Technical Preview was used for these tests since it offers the ability to measure native command queuing at 4 and 32.

In CDM we're looking at 4K and 4K at depth performance. The single command 4K read is slower than the Vertex 3 128GB, but once you start stacking commands the m4 is faster at 4K reads than the Vertex 3.

The 4K and 4K at depth writes are right in line with the Vertex 3 120GB. The larger 256GB based drives are still faster.
