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.







Based on the 4K random performance of the 4TB EVO at QD1 and QD4 we give it the win. We consider 4K QD1 The most important performance metric of this testing and the 4TB model significantly outperforms the competition delivering a massive 50MB/s.




The 850 Series again deliver the best performance of the bunch. This time, the nod goes to the 2TB model due to its better 4K QD1 write performance.





Version and / or Patch Used: 1.8.5611.39791


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. The EVO drives again take the win. Both capacity points score identically. The 4TB model delivers the better read score, and the 2TB model the better write score. This backs up what we saw with our CDM testing. The Mercury Electra again takes the trophy for futility.
