Here we see a similar story when comparing the M3 Pro to the Crucial M4 – we’ve got roughly similar read performance but much higher write performance across benchmarks, particularly in the sequential and 4K-64Thrd tests. Access time is also much better for the M3 Pro, although this may be a function of the age of this particular Crucial M4.

When we check the archives, we discover that the M3 Pro is similiarly competitive with the Samsung 830, OCZ Vertex 3 and Kingston HyperX as before, with slightly lower read speeds but much higher writing speed across the board.

I don’t want to sound like a broken record here, but – once again, there’s similar levels of Write transfer rate (above 500 MB/s for both drives at points), with a slight advantage to the M4, but the M3 Pro blows the Crucial drive out of the water when it comes to write speeds. Again, this mirrors what we’ve seen before.
