CrystalDiskMark is a free storage benchmarking tool for Windows and Linux designed by Crystal Dew World.

Software description

CrystalDiskMark is an important tool to benchmark disk performance. It can measure the performance of hard disks, optical drives, SSDs and other external storages devices, through multiple read/write tests including sequential reads/writes . It’s a great way to make sure your drive is running optimally.

CrystalDiskMark delivers the reliable results for system tests and upgrades. In addition to basic performance testing purposes, it also checks drive health by running in-depth S.M.A.R.T tests. It provides detailed information about the hardware parameters such as buffer size or interface type. This allows users to quickly identify potential weak spots and decide on solutions like changing controllers or upgrading drives before worse issues emerge. Furthermore, compared to other benchmarking tools it focuses on real-world tests and uses realistic file sizes. It  makes the results more meaningful in everyday use cases.

Benchmarking Tool

CrystalDiskMark is a popular benchmarking tool for measuring the performance of solid-state drives (SSDs) and hard disk drives (HDDs). It  can assess overall read/write speeds, access time, sequential transfer speed, burst rate, random data rates etc. The software comes with a simple user interface that allows users to select different testing scenarios and makes it easy even for novice users to measure their drive’s disk performance. CrystalDiskMark also includes advanced features such as 4k aligned stack test which checks how well the data on an SSD transfers while allocating reserved spaces between blocks of data.

Generate Detailed Reports

Another useful feature included in CrystalDiskMark is its ability to generate detailed reports. It includes reduced-sized graphical depictions of the results for deeper analysis and understanding. Ultimately this makes it easier for end users to compare performances across different system types or configurations. It evaluates the pros and cons of incremental changes made when optimizing existing systems or components.
