ATTO v2.41 - Intel P67 Platform
ATTO is one of the oldest drive benchmarks still being used today and is still very relevant in the SSD world. 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.

ATTO Results - Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB - StarTech.com Dock Connection:
Benchmark Results: Obviously, with the SATA 3Gbps and USB 3.0 interfaces, the Kingston SSD is bottlenecked and tops out at 182MB/s reads and 164MB/s writes.
AS-SSD (1.6.4237.30508) Benchmark - Intel P67 Platform
We have been running the AS-SSD Benchmark app for over some time now and found that it gives a broad result set. The programmer has worked very hard on this software and continues to make updates often so if you use it, show him some love and send him a donation. There are now three tests that are found within the tool and we'll show the results from all of them.

Benchmark Results: Similar results here albeit slightly lower overall performance. I really feel like the numbers on each benchmark should be a bit higher given the available throughputs of SATA II and USB 3.0
