About Crystal Disk Mark

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

From: Developer's Page

Crystal Disk Mark 6.0 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 Kingston KC2500 1TB is rated at up to 375,000 IOPS read and 300,000 IOPS write, which is not that high. Looking at the read and write results of all four sections, the KC2500 1TB scored in the second tier of sequential write speed here at APH Networks. Its sequential read speed was among the top and matched the advertised figures. Otherwise, its 4KiB Q8T8 read and write were not that ideal; scoring closer to the budget NVMe drives than the performance ones. The 4KiB Q32T1 read and write were near the back among the compared drives as well. Meanwhile, the 4KiB Q1T1 read and write gave no surprises. I will let you make your own comparisons in our list of SSDs in the graphs above.
