Tune Test – Sequential reading test
Not the fastest result for the Crucial
MX300 SSD in this test.
ATTO disk benchmark
ATTO has become a standard tool for
measuring the data throughput of HDDs and SSDs. It measures the reading and
writing performance, using different file sizes and block sizes.
Testing the drive with ATTO we can see that
it achieves its maximum rated read and write speed.
CrystalDiskMark is quite a handy
benchmarking application, as it focuses on the file sizes that can cause problems
for a system drive.
The result for the MX300 2TB SSD is very
The two graphs below will give a more
detailed view of how the Crucial MX300 2TB SSD compares with other SSDs that I
Here I present the graph for the read speed
tests. You can compare the Crucial MX300 2TB SSD performance with other drives
I have tested.
Finally, the results for the Crucial MX300
2TBB SSD for write speed, and again you can compare it with other drives.
AS SSD Benchmark
AS SSD benchmark is a benchmarking tool
specifically designed to test SSDs. The application tests sequential reading
and writing performance, 4K random reading and writing performance.
AS SSD benchmark also tests 4K threaded
performance. This is very exciting, as this test is the first available test
that I am aware of, that simulates how a PC operating system actually works. A
modern PC and OS, such as Windows Vista/7 does not just run a single thread at a
time, it runs many threads. The AS SSD benchmark "4K 64Thrd" tests
run 64 threads simultaneously throughout the test. If this result is good, then
you can be pretty sure the drive will perform extremely well as a system drive.
After the tests complete, AS SSD benchmark
derives a total score for the drive being tested. This is based on all aspects
of the test results, and gives an indication of how the drive is performing
Now let’s look at the results for the Crucial
MX300 2TB SSD in the form of a screenshot. All our other comparison drives’
results are presented in the form of a graph.
For an SATA SSD the 2TB MX300 SSD gave an
