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.

The high speed and the low latency mean high 4K performance. The F3 Plus scores an amazing 43.5MB/s in the single request test and that ramps up well too as the queue depth increases.

The 4K write speed is in line with other SandForce with MLC drives we've seen in the past. These two tests use incompressible data so this is also our first look at incompressible data sequential performance. The F3 Plus delivers just under 325MB/s, this is representative of your media files like music and movies.
