Version and / or Patch Used: 3.0 Technical Preview
CrystalDiskMark is disk benchmark software that allows us to benchmark 4k and 4k queue depths with accuracy. Note: Crystal Disk Mark 3.0 Technical Preview was used for these tests since it offers the ability to measure native command queuing at QD4.
This backs up what we saw with Anvil's testing; the Electra Max's 4K random performance does not scale over QD1. The one bright spot for the Electra Max is 4K QD1 read performance that's significantly better than the Reactor and TeraNova.
The Electra Max again has a lone bright spot; sequential write performance. The drive's sequential write performance is nowhere near that of the Samsung SSDs, but it is better than the standard SM2246EN powered drives in our test pool. Again, we observe no scaling past QD1.
Version and / or Patch Used: 1.7.4739.38088
AS SSD determines the performance of SSDs. The tool contains four synthetic as well as three practice tests. The synthetic tests are to determine the sequential and random read and write performance of the SSD.
AS SSD is a demanding test, and the Electra Max is obliterated by it. Our synthetic benchmarks have not been kind to the Electra Max. Let's see if the Electra Max can do better with our moderate workload testing.
