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. With this version of CDM, we are focused on 4K random performance at QD1 and QD4.
Focusing in on 4K QD1 and 4K QD4, we see the 860 EVO offers a nice improvement over the 850 EVO. The performance delivered at QD4 by Samsung's 860 Series is as good or better than many NVMe SSDs on the market today.
The 860 EVO just slightly trails the 860 Pro across the board. The Samsung offerings are in a class of their own at low queue depths.
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 focus on total score when evaluating AS SSD results.
AS SSD is a demanding test. With AS SSD we are looking for a minimum score of 1000. The 860 EVO delivers to us the second-best point total for a SATA SSD, surpassed only by the 860 Pro. Keep in mind that with the limited bandwidth of the SATA III interface, a few points are a big deal because most SSDs are bottlenecked by the limitations of the interface. Here again, the 860 EVO outperforms the 850 EVO.
