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 SBX outperforming all of our contenders with the exception of the M8Se.

This time, Intel's 600p gets the better of the SBX at QD1 and QD4. However, if we shift our focus to sequential, the SBX leaves the 600p in the dust.

 

 

 

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 somewhat surprisingly, the SBX handles it with ease. Both the 512GB and 256GB SBX give us our 2K minimum and then some. The 128GB SBX does almost as well as the 512GB 600p. Excellent performance here. Now let's move on to our real-world testing and see what the SBX has to offer.
