Corsair has a new custom PCB for better signal integrity, but is it enough to make this SandForce drive the one you should buy today?

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 look at 4K and native command queuing performance. In the read test we see good scaling at higher queue depths, but the 4 command performance was a little slower than we wanted to see.

With the commands stacked we see excellent performance coming from the Force GT 240GB. The drive takes off like a rocket ship and doesn't hold back.
