Benchmarks: CrystalDiskMark 3.0
As expected the sequential read performance of the new Samsung T3 is virtually the same as the T1 at a little over 400MB/s.
The T3 also managed to break the 400MB/s barrier in the sequential write test, whereas the T1 fell short by 15MB/s.
The T3 sustained 378MB/s in the random 512K read test making it 10MB/s faster than the T1 and 91% faster than the Patriot Supersonic Magnum.
The T3 again matched, or rather just beat the T1 in the random 512K write test.
Again the 1TB T3 was able to beat the 500GB T1, this time in the CrystalDiskMark random 4K-QD32 test.
The random 4K-QD32 write performance was virtually the same on both the T1 and T3.
