CrystalDiskMark

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 WD Black delivers slightly better QD1 and QD4 performance than the E8. The E8 beats the 600p easily at QD1 and QD4 and the SX8000 at QD4.

The SX8000 manages a rare win due to its MLC flash. Overall, the E8 outperforms the rest of the contenders in our test pool.

AS SSD

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. We are looking for a minimum score of 2,000 when evaluating NVMe SSDs

AS SSD is a demanding test, and yet the 2-channel E8 crushes it. The M8SeY manages a better score, but other than that the E8 demolishes the rest of the contenders in our test pool.
