AmorphousDiskMark measures storage read/write performance in MB/s and IOPS.

  • Sequential 1 MiB block read/write measurements with Queue Depth=1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, or 1024
  • Sequential 1 MiB block read/write measurements
  • Random sequence 4 KiB block read/write measurements with Queue Depth=1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, or 1024
  • Random sequence 4 KiB block read/write measurements
  • Read/write MB/s or IOPS scores in the main window
  • Read/write MB/s and IOPS scores in tooltip
  • Measurement data value: random or zero
  • Measurement size: 16 MiB, 32 MiB, 64 MiB, 128 MiB, 256 MiB, 512 MiB, 1 GiB, 2 GiB, 4 GiB, 8 GiB, 16 GiB, 32 GiB, or 64 GiB
  • Measurement interval: 0 seconds, ..., 10 minutes

NOTE: Please do not repeat the read/write measurements unnecessarily. Repeating read/write measurements may shorten the lifespan of your storage device.


MB/s: megabytes per second: 1,000,000 bytes per second

IOPS: input/output operations per second

KiB: Kibibytes: 1,024 bytes

MiB: Mebibytes: 1,024 x 1,024 bytes: 1,048,576 bytes

GiB: Gibibytes: 1,024 x 1,024 x 1,024 bytes: 1,073,741,824 bytes
