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.




I expected to see a higher 4k read in this test than what we achieved. The GT 180 scored just over 28MB/s in the single command, but quickly came into line with other SandForce based drives at 4 commands. The 32 command test is where the 180GB model was able to outperform the limits found on the 120GB drives.




The 120GB limits often referred to at TweakTown as the 120GB brick wall are shattered with the GT 180. Here we see the Corsair Force Series GT 180GB move past the 170ish write limit and move much closer to the speeds offered by the 240GB SandForce based drives.
