Crystal Disk Mark 8.0 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. The WD_BLACK SN850 NVMe SSD 1TB is rated at up to 1,000,000 IOPS read and 720,000 IOPS write, which is very impressive. Looking at the read and write results of all four sections, the SN850 1TB absolutely dominated the linear read and write section against the compared PCIe 3.0 NVMe drives, including the AN1500, and matched the advertised figures. It also dominated the Seq1M Q1T1 read and write tests. Surprisingly, it was not that great in the RND4K Q32T1 tests, but nonetheless remained mostly consistent with the rest of the drives. Lastly, in the RND4K Q1T1 segment, the WD_BLACK SN850 scored first in both segments, but the margin was small. I will let you make your own comparisons in our list of SSDs in the graphs above.
