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, compared against other drives in the category; namely, the OCZ ARC 100 240GB, Patriot Blaze 240GB, Crucial MX100 256GB, and SanDisk Ultra II 240GB, the Silicon Power Slim S80 240GB is an interesting proposition. Its Sequential Read/Write and 512K Read/Write results were among the top. However, when it comes to 4K Read, it seriously kicked butt along with the Phison based Blaze 240GB. On the other hand, its 4K QD32 Read performance was the worst by quite a margin among the four. Moving into the write category, its 4K Write was only second to the Patriot Blaze, and stayed right in line with the competition in 4K QD32 Write. Overall, there really was no clear winner in this category. I will let you make your own comparisons in our large solid state drive comparison chart above.
