Crystal Disk Mark
Crystal Disk Mark performs sequential read and write tests, and also performs a variety of random read and write metrics.
The Agility 3's write performance is fantastic, and consistently performed great, and even outperformed the Vertex 3 Max IOPS, and performed admirably in read performance as well. We see the asynchronous NAND begin to take a bit of a hit in the high queue depth tests, but it remains very fast, and only marginally slower than the Vertex 3 Max IOPS in write performance, but read speeds were hit harder, being nearly half of the Vertex 3 and Patriot Wildfire. This is indicative of performance under demanding "performance" usages such as editing, rendering, etc.
