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 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 the IronWolf posted top notch results in these areas compared to other mechanical disks, often by a significant margin. Generally speaking, the Seagate IronWolf ST12000VN0007 12TB was near the top, if not at the top, in most of the tests, along with the BarraCuda Pro 12TB and IronWolf Pro 12TB. I will let you take a look at the results in our comparison graphs above.
