CrystalDiskMark is a disk benchmark software.


Key Features:-


* Sequential reads/writes
* Random 4KB/512KB reads/writes
* Text copy
* Change dialog design
* internationalization (i18n)


Note: Crystal Disk Mark 3.0 is not available to the public yet, but the Technical Preview does allow us to test 4K performance at queue depths of 4 and 32 in addition to 1. The current release Crystal Disk Mark only shows us QD 1.




Crystal Disk Mark shows where the new "next gen" drives are targeting their performance area, in the 4K and 4K high queue depth areas. Still, the Corsair Nova puts up numbers that are far ahead of even the fastest 15K RPM platter and JMicron SSD drives like the Western Digital SiliconEdge Blue.




When testing the previous Indilinx Barefoot drives, we were not using the latest TP1 edition of CDM that has the advanced 4K queue depth tests. Here we see that the Corsair Nova doesn't scale as well as the next gen SandForce and Marvell controlled drives, but it does hold solid performance in these areas.
