Usually a product has to be outdated and outperformed before it gets replaced, but not those in LSI's portfolio.

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 native command queuing performance. LSI's default stripe size is 64kb and it looks like they choose that size for a reason.

At this point we can call the 8kb stripe size worthless, the drives can't ramp up the speed in that small of a stripe. Fast Path gives us a small advantage in these tests, but much less than I expected.
