Storage and USB Performance
CrystalDiskMark – Sequential Read
The Samsung 850 Evo is capable of superb read speeds and isn’t too far away from similar setups. However, the difference to premium NVMe devices is monumental and reflected in the price gap. The system also reports excellent mechanical disk speeds and a good USB 3.0 result.
CrystalDiskMark – Sequential Write
When it comes to sequential writes, the primary boot SSD once again scores very highly and outperforms a number of competing systems. On another note, the mechanical disk write speeds remained exceptional but I was slightly disappointed by the USB 3.0 numbers.
