Benchmarks: CrystalDiskMark 3.0

The HyperX stood toe to toe with the Vertex 3 in CrystalDiskMark's sequential read and write results (488MB/s and 292MB/s, respectively).

It was hard to separate Kingston and OCZ's drives when comparing CrystalDiskMark's random 512K performance as well. The HyperX averaged a read throughput of 431MB/s – a fraction behind the Vertex 3's 435MB/s – while the there was a 15MB/s margin in write performance.

That trend continued in Random 4K-QD32 read and write performance: the HyperX reached 283.6MB/s on reads and its write performance was particularly strong, reaching 220MB/s.
