About Crystal Disk Mark

- Measure Sequential and Random Performance (Read/Write/Mix)
- Peak/Real World Performance Profile

From: Developer's Page

Crystal Disk Mark 8.0 is in the spotlight. Just a bit of background information, higher capacity drives tend to perform a little better in these tests. The ability of a controller and flash memory to deliver high IOPS will provide huge benefits to the score as well. As manufacturer peak read and write performance ratings are usually achievable using Crystal Disk Mark, whether a drive lives up to its marketing claims or not can be validated by this program.

Corsair claims the MP600 Elite 2TB's maximum read and maximum write are pinned at 7000MB/s and 6500MB/s, respectively. Looking at the read and write results, the MP600 Elite 2TB was in the upper half or near the top in the sequential read and write sections against other PCIe 4.0 NVMe drives, but this was to be expected per the specifications. The tested numbers were pretty close compared to the advertised numbers. However, it did not hold the line in the RND4K tests, where its results were in the ballpark of other mainstream drives, which is fine because this is a mainstream drive. Overall, the MP600 Elite 2TB was way faster than the MP600 Core XT 2TB. I will let you make your own comparisons in our list of NVMe SSDs in the graphs above.
