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.

When converting IOPS over to real MB/s the difference between 8KB page sizes and 16KB page sizes is very small, around 2MB/s with 4K read data at a single queue depth.

The margin opens up a little when writing 4K data to the drive.
