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 Kingston SSDNow UV400 480GB is rated at up to 90,000 IOPS, which I assume is its read rating. Looking at the results, the Kingston SSDNow UV400 480GB landed mostly between the Crucial MX300 and OCZ Trion 150 once again. It held its own in the sequential tests against the Trion 150, although the OCZ still maintained a consistent lead. In the 512K section, it handily beat the MX300 in the read section, but fell behind in the write category, where the Trion 150 once again maintained a consistent lead. Looking at the 4K results, while there was not a big difference in the write figures, the Trion 150 totally destroyed both drives of interest in the read figures. In the 4K QD32 benchmarks, once again, the Trion 150 bested both the UV400 and MX300 by various margins. I will let you make your own comparisons in our massive list of SSDs in the graphs above.
