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 recorded very good incompressible data performance numbers. The 4K read test shows nearly 40MB/s being transferred and that number scales nicely when commands are stacked. The Patriot Pyro SE is able to handle up to 32 commands at a time and when you get to that point you can read close to 225MB/s.




The 120GB Pyro SE hit a wall around 170MB/s in our test, but the 240GB model is able to write without limit reaching nearly 270MB/s at 32 commands. The 4 command write rate at 4K is also impressive, nearing 260MB/s.
