ATTO Disk Benchmark is an old and simple but still very popular synthetic benchmark used to test the maximum theoretical speed of any storage devices, from RAID controllers and host adapters to HDD and SSD drives.
Our Force 3 drive once again gave excellent performance figures, only slightly lower than those of the premium Force GT drive and almost twice as high as a competitive product using the Sandforce SF-1200 controller.
CrystalMark 3.0 x64 is another simple but popular synthetic benchmark used to measure the maximum theoretical speed of hard disk and solid state drives.
The 0x00 fill mode (compressible) mode of the test confirms the test results we received from the ATTO benchmark. When using uncompressible data however, the performance of the Corsair Force 3 drive takes a huge blow and the drive ends up halfway between the premium Force GT drive and the older SF-1200 based SSD.
