The first test we run is CrystalDiskMark. We run the full set of tests with 1GB of incompressible data on a secure erased and freshly formatted drive. We look at the read and write speeds for both sequential data at queue depth 32 for peak performance and random 4KB data at queue depths of 1 and 32. These results give us a snapshot of the peak performance you can expect from your drive when it's new and an overview of the hardware's capabilities.
