CrystalDiskMark x64 v3.0.1:
Next we will look at the CrystalDiskMark
benchmark utility. Three runs were performed and the averages were noted. Our tests were comprised of sequential read and write tests, as well as 4k block read and write tests.
Below are the results for the sequential read and write tests. Strangely enough, we don't see the GoFlex Turbo slack in the write test as it had previously. Performance in both tests are exactly what we'd expect from the drive.
Sequential Read (higher is better):
Sequential Write (higher is better):
As you can see from all of the images below, the GoFlex Turbo splits in the 512k test. Once again, the read test gives us the results we expect and the write test gives the exact opposite.
512k Read (higher is better):
512k Write (higher is better):
