Samsung SM843 Pro: Ultra Fast Data Center SSD
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 Samsung SM843 lead the pack in three out of the four CrystalDiskMark benchmarks, falling victim to the Intel SSD 520 only in the 4K transfer test. Once the queue depth was increased to 32, however, the Samsung drive pulled ahead of the pack by a wide margin.
