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 UV500 240GB is rated at up to 79,000 IOPS, which I assume is its read rating. Looking at the sequential read and write results, the Kingston UV500 240GB was quite competitive with others in its class; trading punches here and there. In the 512K section, was beaten by the same capacity Crucial BX300 and the larger capacity UV500. For the 4K results, the UV500's read performance was a highlight; beating out the UV400 and the BX300. Unfortunately, this did not carry though into the 4K QD32 test, although its read speed was just a hair behind the BX300 240GB. I will let you make your own comparisons in our long list of SSDs in the graphs above.
