From: Developer's Page

The Crucial X6 2TB continued to deliver as expected for a budget SATA-based external solid state drive as we move into our Crystal Disk Mark 7.0 sequential read and write results. Its sequential read and write results generally reflect what we have seen in the past two pages. At 568.0MB/s sequential read and 517.07MB/s sequential write, it was still better advertised numbers as it was with ATTO. As we move into the 4KiB Q8T8, 4KiB Q32T1, and Q1T1 territories, which require high input/out operations per second or IOPS, the Crucial X6 2TB was not intended to compete against all the NVMe-based external SSDs, but surprisingly still held its own against the Lexar SL100 500GB, even though they are different performance classes.
