CrystalDiskMark

Website: crystalmark.info

The first test we run is the latest version of CrystalDiskMark. We run the full set of tests with 1GB of incompressible data on a secure erased and freshly formatted drive. We look at the read and write speeds for both sequential data and random 4KB data (at queue depths of 1 and 32). These results give us a snapshot of the peak performance you can expect from your drive when it's new and an overview of the hardware's capabilities.
