About Crystal Disk Mark

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

From: Developer's Page

Crystal Disk Mark 8.0 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. Taking a look at the results, the NM710 1TB had lower results when it came to sequential read and write speeds, which is consistent with other budget PCIe 4.0-based budget drives. The Q8T1 read results specifically were consistent with the likes of the budget Crucial P3 Plus series and MP600 Core XT. The NM710 1TB actually delivered better performance than the P3 Plus series in Seq1M Q1T1 read. The random read and write Q32T1 performance were decent, scoring around the middle of the pack with both the read and write speeds. The random 4K Q1T1 read results were lower the P3 Plus 4TB and P3 Plus 1TB, while the write results landed the NM710 1TB in the middle of the pack. Overall, this is a budget drive, and it performed as expected.
