Storage and USB Performance
CrystalDiskMark – Sequential Read
The Samsung M.2 PCIe SSD features an unbelievable read rate which almost surpasses the Boston’s Intel enterprise-grade drive. This level of performance without breaking the bank is simply magical and definitely an eye-opener. Although, you won’t notice any major reductions in gaming load times compared to a traditional SSD.
CrystalDiskMark – Sequential Write
I have to admit the SSD’s sequential write speeds put a smile on my face and I was enthralled by the absurdly high result. To clarify, the Fusion Master Skylake is over 500 MB/s faster despite being around half the price of the Boston system. Obviously, this is only one component, but it’s still impressive nonetheless.
