    How to run the benchmark

    Feel free to post results for:

    - SATA/IDE HDDs
    - SATA 3GB/s / 6GB/s SSDs
    - USB 2.0/3.0 Flash Drives
    - RAM Disks

    Whatever else you think is appropriate.

    The rules are quite simple:

    1 - Download CrystalDiskMark from here

    2 - Make sure that Crystal is performing each test 5 times and is doing the 1000MB test, see below:

    Disk01.PNG

    These are the default settings so you shouldn't need to change anything.

    3 - Run the test on whichever drive you want to bench.

    4 - Once the test has completed, open up Notepad and write the following in it:

    - Your CF username and 'computerforum.com'
    - The date
    - The drive which you just benched, the size of the drive (including for RAM Disks) and the interface that it is running on.

    Failure to include these details in your screenshot will result in your score not appearing on the leaderboards.

    5 - Post the result!


    Note about RAID-0 setups

    Unless otherwise stated when posting your score, I will assume that you are using two drives in your RAID-0 configuration. The same is reflected in the leaderboards.

    If you've already posted a score from a RAID-0 configuration that has more than two drives in the array, please let me know so that your leaderboard entry can be amended.


    Note about Samsung SSDs

    Please note that scores posted for Samsung SSDs with the RAPID mode enabled (enabled through Samsung Magician software) will not be appearing on the leaderboard because these scores are not a true representation of the drive's actual performance.

    Instead, please run CrystalDiskMark with RAPID mode disabled.


    ________________________


    Here is what I have benched. I may bench a 240GB SanDisk Extreme SSD and a 128GB Crucial M4 in the near future.

    SSD: OCZ Vertex 4 128GB (SATA 6GB/s)

    Disk02.PNG


    Flash Drive: SanDisk Extreme USB 3.0 64GB (USB 3.0)

    If you can dig one up, you can bench a USB 1.0 or 1.1 drive if you want. There's nothing saying you can't. ;)

    Yeah I agree it's now in a better location, sorry. :eek:

    Good to see some scores already. I remember the M4 had good read speeds but not so good write speeds.

    Is there a difference between the x64 and x32 version? (difference in score I mean?)

    Also maybe include pci express drives? And ram? :p

    Actually a RAM speed test thread would be cool, but RAM is seperated from HDDs. And if you mean testing RAM disks, that's useless I think.

    I'll do mine when I get home. Good idea for a thread.

    Not anymore, soon there will be DDR4 with basic amount of 8-16GB ram and max 100+GB (idk the exact amount) ram for professionals! So you can easily split up half your ram to make a ramdisk :p

    Lol yes, but SSD speed will also be much faster when DDR4 gets down to the price per GB of an SSD (Which I doubt it ever will)

    Ram is an essential piece of hardware + when DDR4 becomes the norm, it will be as cheap as DDR3 now, but in much greater capacity. + SSDs will never be as fast as a ramdisk.

    Anyway, here is slow my centon usb 2.0 (idk the real model name of it)

    I'm not sure if there is a score difference between the x86 and x64 versions of Crystal Disk or not. I just downloaded the x86 version since it looks like the x64 is in beta.

    I left the thread title quite open, so yeah go ahead and post RAM disks and PCI Express drives.

    I think if I do make a leaderboard for this thread eventually I might just make 'Fastest Read Speed' and 'Fastest Write Speed' since I think there's going to be a lot of different drives which people are testing. That sounds fine to me, what do other people think?

    Fast!! :D
