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.

Very few drives are able to achieve 40 MB/s in our 4K QD1 test, but the C-Drive F8 is very close to that mark. The drive scales very well as we increase the queue depth as well.

When it comes to the C-Drive's write performance, this chart really tells us all we need to know. When compared to flagship models, the sequential performance is down, but still higher than LSI SandForce drives since this test uses incompressible data. The 4K QD1 write performance is also slower than the flagship drives, but comparable to many of the other drives on the chart.
