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. As you can see in our charts above, once again, the Patriot Hellfire M.2 240GB was by far one of the fastest SSDs by a very wide margin in almost every category. It won the sequential read/write, 512K read/write, and 4K read tests by several miles. However, it was no match for the OCZ RD400A 512GB in 4K write performance; the RD400A also retained top honors in the 4K QD32 read/write tests. Other than that, if words could not describe how fast this SSD is, a comparison against everything we have tested here at APH Networks since 2010 will. I will let you check out our massive comparison graphs above.
