About Crystal Disk Mark

- Peak/Real World Performance Profile

From: Developer's Page

Our third set of tests is Crystal Disk Mark 8.0. For 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. The Western Digital Blue SN570 NVMe SSD 1TB is rated up to 460,000 IOPS read and 450,000 IOPS write, which is good for a budget drive. As manufacturer peak read and write performance ratings are usually achievable using Crystal Disk Mark, whether a drive lives up to its marketing claims or not can be validated by this program. Unfortunately, we do not exactly see the peak speeds that were claimed by Western Digital here, but you can still see the WD Blue SN570 1TB put up competitive numbers for an affordable drive. On one hand, it was still among the slowest drive in the Seq1M Q8T1 results, but it was also near the top for the RND4K Q32T1 test. Otherwise, you can make your own comparisons in our list of SSDs in our graphs above.
