CrystalDiskMark is a disk benchmark software that allows us to benchmark 4K and 4K queue depths with accuracy.

Key Features:-

* Sequential reads/writes

* Random 4KB/512KB reads/writes

* Text copy

* Change dialog design

* internationalization (i18n)

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.

In CDM we again see massive increases to the sequential reads with the new PCIe 3.0 spec ARC-1882. The rest of the categories get a little bit of a bump, but not as much of a percentage as the sequential test.

In the write portion of CDM we again saw large in the sequential test and modest 4K gains in the RAID 0 test. RAID 5 and RAID 6 saw 4k dips due to the new firmware on the Crucial m4 and from being abused.
