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 for the V200 meet the max specification of 300MB/s but the reads actually exceed the max specification of 190MB/s by quite a margin reaching 228MB/s at its peak. We should also point out that neither are near the peak scores of some of the faster (and more expensive) drives but being a top performer is not the goal of this drive.
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: Write scores are similar here but the reads drop off a bit, although not by much. The overall score is lower on the scale but far from the bottom.
Benchmark Results: Unlike SandForce drives, the read/write performance here is more consistent, regardless of the level of data compressibility.
