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 Micron 9100 MAX performed well in the various CrystalDiskMark tests. Here, the drive offered the best sequential write performance at the higher queue depth and strong 4K transfers at QD32 as well. Performance wasn't quite as strong in the standard sequential and 4K transfer tests, however.
