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 Seagate 600 240GB has a lower 4K read speed when compared to some of the top performance SSD's on the market. This is one reason why the price is so important to know. Does it cost as much as the 840 Pro, or is it priced like the 840 and Vertex 3.20?

I was actually surprised to see the 600 SSD 240GB lose to the Neutron GTX at QD4 and QD32 in the write test since the 600 produced more IOPS in these tests on the previous page.
