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 64MB transfer sizes with the total length being 256MB.
Benchmark Results: ATTO showed the MyDigitalSSD BPX480GB NVMe drive topped out at 2,961 MB/s read and 2,320 MB/s write in the standard overlapped I/O benchmark. This drive is rated at 2,600 MB/s max sequential read and 1,300 max sequential write, so we smashed those numbers.
Benchmark Results: When comparing the the other SSD models you can quickly see that it does pretty well. It does perform slightly behind the other Phison E7 controlled SSDS (Patriot Hellfire and Corsair MP500), but not by much and that is likely due to the different Flash and firmware that this drive uses.
CrystalDiskMark is a small benchmark utility for drives and enables rapid measurement of sequential and random read/write speeds. Note that CDM only supports Native Command Queuing (NCQ) with a queue depth of 32 (as noted) and shows the highest score of five runs.
Benchmark Results: The MyDigitalSSD BPX 480GB SSD reached 1,467 MB/s read and 1,392 MB/s write in the standard sequential write test and Random 4K performance was 48 MB/s read and 137 MB/s write. When we ran the test again set to 0Fill mode the sequential scores jumped up to 2,571 MB/s read and 2,108 MB/s write.
