CrystalDiskMark Performance

CrystalDiskMark is a new synthetic test we've started looking at that tests both sequential as well as random small and large file transfers.  It does a nice job of providing a quick look at best and worst case scenarios with SSD performance, best case being large sequential transfers and worse case being small, random 4K transfers.

OCZ Agility EX - 60GB SLC SSD

Intel X-25M G2 - 160GB MLC SSD

The Agility EX provided superior results in the CrystalDiskMark test suite. At 258.7 MB/s sequential read speed, it actually surpassed its advertised performance once again. Furthermore, the drive turned in a blazing write speed of 193.5 MB/s. 4K reads were also strong, and 4K writes were good too, but the Intel drive's 4K writes were superior.
