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.

Incompressible data doesn't affect reads as we see here in CDM.

Incompressible data when writing to the drive slow the DX 480GB down quite a bit. Here we see the sequential performance drop to just 281MB/s.
