ATTO Disk Benchmark v2.47 Transfer Speed
ATTO has been around for quite awhile but still gives us good information on the performance of current hard drives. In this test ATTO measures the raw transfer speed for both reads and writes and presents it as a graph. We ran ATTO with file sizes from 0.5kb up through 8192kb with the total length being 256mb.
