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.
Benchmark Results: The Corsair Force LS 240GB posts some very nice numbers on the ATTO benchmark including tying the best write scores in our comparison grid as well as read scores that are a hair off of the best score.
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 two of them.
Benchmark Results: The Phison PS3108-S8 controller performance drops off a bit here on the writes when faced with data that’s incompressible but the reads remain strong, posting the best performance score in our comparison.
Benchmark Results: Usually, we see this graph slope up as it moves left to right from incompressible to compressible data but with the Force LS it actually slopes down a little but the angle of slope is rather small.
