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.

In a recent announcement the makers of CDM stated that they were making the 1000MB test the default benchmark so we have changed over from the 100MB test and started using the 1000MB test in our reviews.

In CDM we focus on the 4K performance and here we see solid 16MB/s read speeds, but the write speeds are right around 2.5MB/s. The write speeds are faster than those of traditional platter drives, but nothing like the speeds we are seeing on the USB 3.0 SSDs. Then again, the N005 doesn't have the very high cost associated with USB 3.0 SSDs either.
