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: The Samsung Portable SSD T3 2TB was showing 443.3MB/s read and 430.2MB/s write on the sequential test when we ran the drive on the CrystalDiskMark storage test with the default settings (incompressible data). When running the 0×00 (0 Fill) test (compressible data) we found that the sequential read/write performance of the drive was about the same. The 4K performance was a respectable 29MB/s read and 79MB/s write.
We have been running the AS-SSD Benchmark app for over some time now and found that it gives a broad result set. The programmer has worked very hard on this software and continues to make updates often so if you use it, show him some love and send him a donation. There are now three tests that are found within the tool and we’ll show the results from all three of them.
Benchmark Results: In AS SSD we found the Samsung Portable SSD T3 2TB Drive was reaching 433MB/s read and 409MB/s in the sequential write test. The AS SSD Benchmark overall score ended up being 382 points.
Benchmark Results: In the AS SSD Copy-Benchmark we found the Samsung Portable SSD T3 2TB Drive had a speed of 202 MB/s in the ISO test, 162 MB/s in the Program test and 196MB/s in the Game test.
