CrystalDiskMark

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 3.0 Technical Preview

 

CrystalDiskMark is disk benchmark software that allows us to benchmark 4k and 4k queue depths with accuracy. Note: Crystal Disk Mark 3.0 Technical Preview was used for these tests since it offers the ability to measure native command queuing at QD4.

The Reactor delivers the best sequential performance of the drives on our chart. Its twin, the BX100, delivers slightly better 4K read performance.

This is a win for the Reactor. Overall, it is able to outperform the rest of the drives in our test pool when writing data. The TeraNova with its 20nm flash delivers slightly better 4K QD1 performance, but the Reactor with its newer flash technology outperforms the TeraNova in the rest of the categories.

 

 

AS SSD

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.7.4739.38088

 

AS SSD determines the performance of Solid-State Drives (SSD). The tool contains four synthetic as well as three practice tests. The synthetic tests are to determine the sequential and random read and write performance of the SSD.

All of the SM2246EN controlled drives score about the same. The Trion and Ignite both score higher due to their superior read performance.
