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.
When it comes to sequential performance, S10-powered drives set the bar. We also note the superior performance of the BP5e at QD1 and QD4. The cased model delivers the best performance of the bunch at QD32.
MDD specs the BP5e at up to 155 MB/s with CDM at 4K QD1 write. This spec is accurate, but only for Windows 7 users. Windows 8.1 or 10 users can expect about 140 MB/s if their system is well tuned.
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 MDD BP5e M.2 does not disappoint. In fact, it sets a new lab record for planar TLC SSDs. Like we stated in our intro, the M.2 version of the BP5e is just as fast as the cased model; contrary to some published reviews floating around out there.
