CrystalDiskMark 3.0.1

Much like HD Tune, CrystalDiskMark is an easy-to-run and quick utility to use to gauge a drive’s performance. It measures sequential read and write performance and random read and write speeds of random 4KB, 4KB (queue depth 32) and 512KB data.

Performance of the Intel SSD 520 series on this benchmark is generally strong and is right up there with the current crop of high-end consumer SSDs, if not better in the more strenuous tests.
