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 4 and 32.




Across the board, write performance is outstanding.




Read performance is where the 600 Series takes a back seat to the other drives on our chart. Our 480GB two drive 600 series array is able to outperform the smaller capacity 600 series array.




Sequentially, a larger capacity 600 series array outperforms a similar smaller capacity 600 series array; however, the smaller capacity array is able to put up slightly superior random write numbers. Here, we see that both 600 series arrays can outperform the Extreme II.


Our EVO array is able to put up slightly better numbers, but that's only because this test doesn't exceed the EVO array's "Turbo Write" emulated SLC layer.
