CrystalDiskMark is a disk benchmark software that allows us to benchmark 4K and 4K queue depths with accuracy.
* 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.
Very few client SSDs manage to break 40 MB/s 4K QD1 and the X210 wasn't one of them. It would be difficult to get any closer, though, without going over the line. When looking at megabytes per second, the X210 scales well when going from QD1 to QD4. The sequential test showed nearly 500 MB/s when using incompressible data.
There is not much to say when it comes to incompressible data writes. The X210 delivers good performance, while keeping data secure.
