CrystalDiskMark

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.

Just as we saw from Anvils, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 with RST 13.6 perform similarly. Windows 10 with RST 14.5 has lower 4K QD1 performance.

AS SSD

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.7.4739.38088

AS SSD determines the performance of Solid-State Drives (SSD). 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.

More of the same. We are starting to see a trend developing. 13 series drivers deliver superior 4K performance. Will that translate into higher performance with moderate workloads? Let's see.
