4K QD32 Performance (CrystalDiskMark)

In this test a mechanical drive such as the Barracuda XT or VelociRaptor score around 2.0/1.5MB/s which gives us a baseline figure for performance.



Benchmark Results


The result in this test will go some way to showing how responsive a drive will be in Windows use as the operations performed are similar to the random reads and writes regularly performed by the OS. In this test we see that the PNY drive doesn’t quite fare as well as it did in Atto. 341/265MB/s is still a decent result and one which compares favourably with the other Sandforce drives (Force GS/Intel 520) but the Marvell, Indilinx, Link-A and Samsung controllers do better in this type of test.
