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 evaluating CDM results, we focus on 4K random performance at QD1 and QD4.
Focusing in on the all-important 4K and 4K QD4 read performance, we find our Optane arrays absolutely crushing the flash-based contenders. This again illustrates why we are saying you can create the world's fastest OS disk for $240.
Both of our Optane arrays deliver better random write performance at QD1 than the competing SSDs in our test pool.
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. We evaluate AS SSD performance in terms of overall score. We are looking for a minimum score of 2,000 when evaluating NVMe SSDs
Our Optane arrays don't produce the best overall score, but they do deliver far better read scores than the flash-based competition. Now that we are done with our synthetic testing we can move on to our real-world testing and show you in detail why an Optane Memory array is today's fastest OS disk.
