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. As you can see in our charts above, once again, the Kingston HyperX Predator PCIe 480GB is by far the fastest single drive solution by a very wide margin in the first two tests. In the Read category, it delivered the second highest sequential speed; trailing the OCZ RevoDrive 350 480GB by only about a hundred megabytes per second. It also performed extremely well for 512K. That said, it was not particularly hot in the 4K and 4K QD32 tests; its score was about average in both. In the Write category, again, it easily whooped the traditional SATA drives in the sequential and 512K tests, and followed only behind the OCZ RevoDrive 350 480GB. Again, its 4K and 4K QD32 results were only about average. I will let you check out our massive comparison graphs above.
