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 performance trends we've seen through most of this review rang true again here. Once again we see the Samsung 983 DCT SSDs outpacing the Intel
SSD DC P4510 in the read tests, though the Intel drive put up better writes, save for the 1.92TB 983 DCT's sequential score, which as a touch higher. The SATA-based 883 DCT drives performed well, relatively speaking, but are obviously not in the same class as the NVMe-based drives.
