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 XPG Gammix S10 lagging behind the rest of the contenders in our test pool. Here again, the lowly 600p has a slight advantage.

Writing random data at low queue depths is what the XPG Gammix S10 likes best. It is able to best several of the contenders in our test pool.

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.

We don't get our 2K minimum, but we are pleased to see the XPG Gammix S10 taking the 600p to the woodshed. Keep in mind that the XPG Gammix S10 is priced lower than the Intel 600p.
