Kingston SSDNow V100 128GB SSD ReviewSat, Feb 26, 2011 - 12:00 AM
ATTO & AS-SSD Synthetic Benches
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 read scores here are excellent for the Kingston V100, approaching the SATA 3Gbps maximum throughput and exceeding the rated specification. The writes are a little below the 230MB/s specification but still in the ballpark.
We have been running the AS-SSD Benchmark app for over 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 an 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 often so if you use it, show him some love.
Benchmark Results: The overall score is pulled down by the 4KB performance numbers which aren’t setting any speed records. The sequential scores were very good and very near the top amongst its peers.
