5. Benchmarks - page 3
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. For the first test we used the default 1,000MB file-size:
Sequential tests on this SSD produced a maximum read speed of 500.8 MB/s, while the write speed was just 114.8 MB/s. Both results match the figures quoted by Crucial. The drive also preformed great with in reading 4KQD32 files but was generally slower than other SSDs in the writing tests.
With the software testing the drive's performance with 'compressible' (0×00 fill) files, the drive's sequential performance remained unchanged:
