Phison E12 NVMe PCIe Gen3 x4 Controller Preview

Version and / or Patch Used: 5.5.0


CrystalDiskMark is the worlds most popular SSD benchmark. CDM allows us to quickly and easily evaluate an SSDs sequential and random read/write performance.








Samsung's 970 EVO wins this battle at every measured category. The E12 does edge out SanDisk's Extreme Pro for second best sequential QD32 and third best 4K QD1 performance.




Phison's E12 destroys the competition at every measured category - delivering another lab record. This, like we saw with Anvil's, clearly shows that in terms of overall write performance, the E12 has no equal. Most impressive is the E12's random performance at QD1, especially when you consider that the E12 doesn't have the benefit of a proprietary NVMe driver like Samsung's 970 EVO does.

We evaluate AS SSD performance in terms of overall score. We are looking for a minimum total score of 2,000 when evaluating NVMe SSDs










Another lab record for a flash-based SSD falls to Phison's E12. The 740K random write IOPS generated by Phison's E12 is stunning as is every other measured category provided by this test. Typically, this is one of the most demanding tests we run, but the E12 cuts through it like a hot knife through butter.
