Crystal Disk Mark
Crystal Disk Mark performs sequential read and write metrics. We ran four different tests using CDM: Sequential, Seq-4K, Seq-512K, and Seq-4K QD32.
The HyperX 3K was able to stick with the high-end drives (Vertex 3 MAX IOPS, Wildfire) and also stood at the top in several tests. The noteworthy one is the 4K QD32 tests, where it stands appreciably above in read performance and is also up there just topping the Vertex 3 Max IOPS. The sequential read performance also essentially matches some of the best drives out there, and the read performance from the large 240GB of writeable area set it well on its own.
