CrystalDiskMark Performance

CrystalDiskMark is a synthetic benchmark 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 regard to SSD performance, best case being larger sequential transfers and worse case being small, random transfers.

Synthetic File Transfer Tests

Fusion-io ioDrive 160GB SLC

Fusion-io - 80GB MLC

OCZ RevoDrive 120GB

OCZ RevoDrive X2 240GB MLC

LSI WarpDrive 300GB SLC

OCZ RevoDrive 3 X2 480GB

The RevoDrive 3 X2 shows dramatically faster write performance versus the previous generation RevoDrive product and in sequential transfers, almost gets within sneezing distance of the ioDrive.  In small 4K writes it's actually able to hang with Fusion-io's product pretty darn well.  At higher que-depths, however, LSI's WarpDrive is the clear victor in this test.
