Crystal Disk Mark 3.0 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. The Crucial BX500 480GB's IOPS rating is not posted from the factory. Looking at the sequential read and write results, the Crucial BX500 480GB was in the ballpark with others in its class, although it was consistently behind the Crucial BX300, Gigabyte UD PRO, and Kingston UV500. In the 512K section, the BX500 was beaten by the Crucial BX300 by a significant margin, but was surprisingly close to the Kingston UV500. It was also faster than the UD PRO in write, but got beaten in the read section. For the 4K results, the BX500 was once again beaten by the BX300 and UV500. The surprising figure came in at 4K QD32, where the BX500's write performance exceeded that of the BX300, UD PRO, and UV500. I will let you make your own comparisons in our massive list of SSDs in the graphs above.
