CrystalDiskMark is a free utility maintained by Japanese company Crystal Dew World. CrystalDiskMark evaluates the performance of your hard drives based on two tests – a sequential read/write test and a random read/write test. You can select the drive to test, the number of test and the size of the data to test which can be 50MB, 100MB, 500MB and 1000MB. The results displayed below have been conducted using 5 rounds of the 500MB test.
Not a great start for the Vertex Turbo beating the Falcon in small 4k and sequential write speeds but losing out by a fair margin in the remainder of the read and write tests despite on paper being the faster drive.
