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.

For the last year, we've praised SSDs that manage to best 150 MB/s in 4k QD1 write performance. It's a small club, but the Crucial M550 128GB made it in.
