The next benchmark is the CrystalDiskMark. The software provides throughput data based on sequential reads and writes, and random (512K/4K/4KQD32) reads and writes of various sizes.
Below you see the drive's performance with incompressible data:
Writing of incompressible data was slower than some other drives, as it typically happens with the SSDs based on the SandForce SF-2281controller.
As we previously saw, the drive reads and writes random 512K files remarkably fast, and also excels in the random read/writes of small 4K files, especially in increased queue depths. But all these as long as the data is compressible. With less compressible data, writing is still adequate but lags behind the competition.
