Crystal Disk Mark 6.0 is our third test. 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. Looking at the sequential read and write results, the Patriot P300 512GB was near the bottom for both write and read, which is not too surprising considering the given numbers from Patriot. The sequential read result was the slowest among all of our NVMe drives, while the write result was third from the bottom. In the 4K, eight thread and eight queue tests, the P300 512GB was notably faster than the Crucial P1 500GB, while trading places with the two WD Blue NVMe SSDs. As for the 4K, 32 queue tests, the Patriot P300 was back at the bottom for the read test, while in the middle for its write. Finally, with a single queue and thread, the P300 was a bit behind for read speeds, though near the top of the pack for write. These results are not too surprising considering the budget nature of this drive. All in all, these results traded blows with its competition.
