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. When evaluating CDM results, we focus on 4K random performance at QD1 and QD4.
The BPX and the MP500 are both E7-powered SSDs. The BPX is cheaper, the MP500 a slightly better flash array. CDM displays the performance advantage that the MP500 has over the BPX, most notably at 4K QD4.
With this version of CDM, sequential performance is measured at QD1 which is the reason sequential rates are lower than Corsair's quoted numbers which are measured at QD32.
Again, the MP500 has the advantage over the BPX, this time it is at every measured data point.
Version and / or Patch Used: 1.8.5611.39791
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. We evaluate AS SSD performance in terms of overall score.
AS SSD is a demanding test, and the MP500 has no problem dispatching it with ease. This is the highest score we've seen from a retail E7-powered SSD when loaded up with data. However, Intel's 750 and the Samsung offerings deliver better performance.
