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.

In CDM, we get our first deep look at performance with incompressible data. The Force Series LS compares well in the sequential tests, nearly the fastest on the chart. The 4K read performance drops quite a bit compared to some of the other drives on the chart, though.

4K write performance is high as well, but not as high as some of the more established products on the market. Like many of the LSI SandForce based drives, we see a large drop off when working with incompressible data.
