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 X400 wins this test hands down. The X400 delivers vastly superior 4K random read performance, especially where it counts most; QD1.

The X400 delivers the third best sequential and 4K QD1 write performance.

 

 

AS SSD

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.7.4739.38088

 

AS SSD determines the performance of SSDs. 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.

AS SSD is a demanding test, and the X400 manages a third place finish, losing to the S10-powered TRION 150 and BP5e. We expect to see the X400 make a big comeback with our moderate workload testing, which we consider to be much more important than synthetic performance.
