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. While Lexar did not provide any IOPS ratings for the NQ100 480GB, we can jump into the results anyway. The Lexar NQ100 480GB performed quite well in the linear read and write sections, scoring first every test except the Seq1M Q1T1 read segment, where it only fell behind the Patriot P200 512GB. However, the results from the random read and write tests were not as successful. The NQ100 480GB came out on top in the RND4K Q1T1 read segment, but also placed last in the RND4K Q32T1 write test. The NQ100 480GB scored in the middle of the pack with the other random read and write tests, further solidifying the mixed performance with random data transfer.
