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.

The numbers speak for themselves: Hyper-class performance from top to bottom.

EVO's have outstanding QD1 performance, and our mSATA EVO array is no exception. Our mSATA doesn't win any single categories, but overall it puts up a performance second only to our larger capacity EVO array.

Our standard 1GB CDM write test fits within both of our EVO arrays Turbo Write write acceleration layer, so the drive's larger TLC NAND array isn't being hit by this test. This is a prime example of how emulated SLC technology implementation is utilized to mitigate the shortcomings of lower performing NAND technologies.
