Crystal Disk Mark 3.0 is in the spotlight. Crystal Disk Mark is an important benchmark, because it tests the input/output operations per second capability of the storage device. As you can see in our charts above, compared against a few select drives; namely, hard drives from HGST, Seagate, and Western Digital, the 7,200RPM IronWolf Pro 12TB performed fairly well. For a drive of this caliber, these results were very good, especially in the sequential read/write and 512K read/write segments. Its 4K and 4K QD32 write performance was obviously no match against the workload optimized Enterprise Capacity 3.5 HDD V.5 either, but it also fell into the shadow of the BarraCuda Pro 12TB and IronWolf 12TB, which was surprising and a little disappointing. Generally speaking, the Seagate IronWolf Pro ST12000NE0007 12TB was competitive in most of the tests, but it was not necessarily class-leading all the time. I will let you take a look at the results in our comparison graphs above.
