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 BX200 displays decent 4k read performance, third to that of our SMI reference drive and the M6V. The remainder of the chart finds the BX200 performing below that of the rest of the drives in our test pool.

The BX200's caching layer is doing its job, enabling the BX200 to crank out some decent numbers across the board, especially at QD32.

 

 

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.

Scoring again looks decent - over a thousand points for both capacities. Again we will point out that this test is running within the drive's caching layer. Let's see what moderate workload performance looks like.
