CrystalDiskMark is a small HDD benchmark utility for your hard drive that enables you to rapidly measure sequential and random read/write speeds.
100MB Files Test:
Benchmark Results: With Crystal Mark v3.0 run with a file size of 100MB we were able to get solid performance numbers, but the write scores are lower than what other benchmarks were showing. This is a little strange, but the results were the same every time we ran the benchmark.
100MB Files Test Comparison Chart: The OCZ Vertex 2 100GB SSD scores lined up very close to what we say on the Vertex LE and Vertex 2 Pro. The original Vertex 120GB SSD shows its main weakness here, which is 4K write performance. This is very interesting as you will recall that the original Vertex drive was much faster in the 4K tests in HD Tune 4.01.
