ATTO v2.41 & AS SSD Benchmarks
ATTO is one of the oldest drive benchmarks still being used today. ATTO measures transfers across a specific volume length. It measures raw transfer rates for both reads and writes and places the data into graphs that can be very easily interpreted. The test was run with the default runs of 0.5kb through 8192kb transfer sizes with the total length being 256MB.
Benchmark Results: Read scores for the Corsair Nova are excellent and and the writes are no slouch either. This is pretty much what we expect to see from an Indilinx-based drive and the Sandforce based Force drive outpaced it here.
AS SSD Benchmark
We have been running the AS SSD Benchmark app for nearly a year now and found that it gives a broad result set. Many testers are using the 4k file size read/write results for the IO Meter benchmark which is a old tool and the AS SSD benchmark essentially shows the same metric in its results set. The programmer worked very hard on this software and continues to make updates so it you use it, show him some love.
Benchmark Results: Somewhat middle of the road scores here overall but still good performance and mostly on par with the Patriot Torqx drive which is also Indilinx based.
