CrystalDiskMark and PCMark 7
CrystalDiskMark is a small benchmark utility for drives and enables rapid measurement of sequential and random read/write speeds. Note that CDM only supports Native Command Queuing (NCQ) with a queue depth of 32 (as noted) for the last listed benchmark score. This can skew some results in favor of controllers that also do not support NCQ.
CrystalDiskMark 3.0.1 x64 - Intel P67 Platform
Benchmark Results: Once again, the Neutron GTX takes the crown on the sequential writes, smokin' most of the other drives in the comparison - including the Neutron junior.
PCMark 7 Professional - Intel P67 Platform
We are continuing to use the new PCMark 7 software since they have updated it to version 7 which is specifically designed for Windows 7. It measures the performance of the latest PC hardware across a variety of common scenarios. PCMark Vantage 7 supports both system level and component level benchmarking and comprises several different test suites but for the purposes of this review, we employed the secondary storage suite. The nice thing about it is that you can submit your scores online and compare against others.
Benchmark Results: No top scores here but darn close in several instances with an overall score of 5,285.
