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.

Benchmark Results: Like the AS-SSD benchmark, read scores fall a bit off of the max specification of the V200 but the writes still exceed the rated 190MB/s. The 4k scores are actually very good in comparison to the rest of the pack.

PCMark 7 Professional – Intel P67 Platform

PCMARK 7 Pro

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: Scores here a closer to that of the other drives in the comparison as this particular benchmark doesn’t always show large disparities in peformance.
