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. In this particular benchmark, the ability of a controller and flash memory to deliver high IOPS will provide huge benefits to the score as well. With four SandForce SF-2282 controllers on board, and rated for 140,000 IOPS, the OCZ RevoDrive 350 480GB is simply designed for dominance in this set of tests. Unsurprisingly, the RevoDrive 350 rocked the competition once more -- at least for the most part. It was by far the fastest in Sequential Read and Sequential Write; its bars on the 512K section is also much longer than anything else we have tested on our list. Interestingly, it only came in about average in our 4K Read and 4K Write tests, and while it again took home a major victory in our 4K QD32 Write, its 4K QD32 Read was also about average on the list. With that all said and done, the OCZ RevoDrive 350 480GB is a serious performer in Crystal Disk Mark.
