Synthetic File Transfer Tests

CrystalDiskMark is a synthetic test that evaluates 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 hard drive performance, best case being large sequential transfers and worse case being small, random 4K transfers.

We found similar read/write performance with all the boards tested. But since we're splitting hairs, MSI's GD80 recorded the highest sequential read speed at 130 MB/s. However, the WS Revolution board logged the fastest sequential write performance at 127 MB/s.
