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.

Focusing in on QD1 and QD4 we find the 760p delivering dominating performance. Although not charted, the 760p is delivering better random read performance at QD1 and QD4 than Samsung's 960 Series. This is in fact the best low queue depth random read performance we've seen from any flash-based SSD to date. We also cannot overlook the 760p's sequential read performance at QD1 because it's once again the best we've ever seen from a flash-based SSD.

Random write performance at QD1, where it matters most, is second only to Intel's own 750 Series. We again looked back at our Samsung 960 Series numbers and found that the 760p is in-fact delivering better QD1 random write performance.

 

 

 

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 as we've seen all along, when the 760p is reading random from its SLC cache at low queue depths, is the fastest flash-based SSD we've seen to date. 72 MB/s at QD1 random read is incredible to say the least. In terms of overall score, the 760p delivers Tier-1 performance but not the best we've seen. Now let's move on to moderate workload performance where SLC caching plays much less of a role in scoring.
