I have a Mushkin chronos system drive and another ssd for projects. I feel like I am getting a terrible performance with the Mushkin considering that it is supposed to be faster than my project ssd. I am wondering if anyone with knowledge of this stuff can shed some light.
I feel like the difference is pretty huge. However the Mushkin SSD is my system drive maybe that might explain the difference here? Especially the random write seems just too big of a difference to miss.
I used CrystalDiskMark
Firmware : 504ABBF0
Serial Number : MKN1238A0000129041
Disk Size : 180.0 GB (8.4/137.4/180.0)
* MB/s = 1,000,000 byte/s [SATA/300 = 300,000,000 byte/s]
Thanks for everyone who replied here. I was misguided by the default value of the CDM
When I change to 0 fills it performs much better.
Here is a note from one of the test sites
CrystalDiskMark is our next test and it has a sequential read / write test as well as a 512k and 4k random read / write test. With SandForce-based drives we run this test with 0-fill because SandForce-based drives do not handle incompressible data that well.
