Intel Solid-State Drive DC S3700 Review
CrystalDiskMark is a synthetic benchmark that tests both sequential and random small and mid-sized file transfers using incompressible data. It provides a quick look at best and worst case scenarios with regard to SSD performance, best case being larger sequential transfers and worse case being small, random transfers.
The Intel DC S3700 series drives offered middling performance in the large sequential transfer tests that are part of the CrystalDiskMark benchmarks, but in both of the 4K transfer tests the DC S3700 series drives put up some of the best scores of the bunch. RAID the drives together and up the workload, and the DC S3700 series drives clearly lead the pack.
