It was interesting to see little change and a drop when looking at the 4K random transfer Crucial M4 512GB SSD at a queue depth of 1 on the m4 compared to the older C The older C measured Expanding Crucial M4 512GB SSD 4K read and write tests out to a queue depth of 64 showed slightly different behavior. The C still maintained a clear advantage in read speeds, but the m4 was able to pick up the slack as it turned to write speeds. The one noted change though were the slightly higher recorded random 4K write speeds.

Looking at our server profile tests the Crucial m4 still lagged behind the C in every scenario. Performance was comparable between the m4 and Intel SSDwith each drive playing leapfrog between tests.

Crucial M4 GB SSD not responding - Crucial Community

One interesting performance trait of both the C and m4 on the database benchmark is they both sharply drop off between Crucial M4 512GB SSD 32 and 64 queue depth mark. Real-World Benchmarks If you are a first time visitor on StorageReview, one thing we try to focus on is how any given drive might perform under real-world conditions. For the average user, trying to translate high random 4K write speeds into an everyday situation is pretty difficult. It also doesn't make sense to assume that a drive with very high sequential speeds is going to perform great in Crucial M4 512GB SSD real-world if it can't cope with mixed random activity.


To really see how drives perform under normal work-loads you need to record the exact traffic being passed to and from the device, and then use that to compare drives against one another. For this reason we turned to our StorageMark traces, which include HTPC, Productivity, and Gaming scenarios to help our readers find out Crucial M4 512GB SSD well a drive might perform under their conditions. Before continue with our real-world benchmarks, one area we need to address surrounds our Productivity trace.

  • Crucial m4 GB Solid State Drive w/ the Update Review
  • Crucial releases m4 SSDs, prices them between $ and $1,
  • Crucial m4 512GB SSD Hard Drive (CT512M4SSD2)
  • Crucial m4 512GB Solid State Drive w/ the 0009 Update Review
  • Lexar will sell the first ever 1TB SDXC card

In the past most SSDs have charged through this trace providing valuable and worthwhile information, although that is heavily dependent on how the drive can cache byte aligned information. On the Crucial m4, Micron made changes to the firmware to put more emphasis on 4K-aware operating Crucial M4 512GB SSD, dropping support for legacy systems with the goal of improving 4K-aligned performance. The result is much slower performance on legacy systems and slower numbers in our Productivity trace. We are transitioning to a newer 4K-aligned trace in this category soon, to go along with our HTPC and Gaming traces for newer drives.

The first real-life test is our HTPC scenario. In this test we include: In this trace we recorded 2,MB being written to the drive and 1,MB being read. As we mentioned above, performance in this non-4K optimized dropped well below the performance of other SSDs, including the C Luckily for most buyers of the m4, using it with Windows 7 or other 4K-aware operating systems will put it in an optimal Crucial M4 512GB SSD where it can perform much better than in this trace.

The downside is buyers who still use Windows XP or Vista will see far worse performance on the m4 than if they used a different model Our Crucial M4 512GB SSD real-life test covers disk activity in a productivity scenario. We've updated our entire portfolio of Crucial m4 products with the new firmware, all the way from the 64GB to the newest GB model.

The updated benchmark results will be Crucial M4 512GB SSD our performance charts from this point forward. This article isn't just about the new "free performance" firmware update, though. We have Crucial's largest SSD to date on the test bench and with it a big smile on our faces. We rarely hear about the largest SSD capacity sizes since they are generally beyond what most enthusiasts spend on a single product for their system, but prices have been falling rapidly.
