ATTO & AS-SSD Benchmarks

ATTO v2.47

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.

ATTO – Intel Z77 Platform:



Benchmark Results: It’s no surprise that we would see the Vector 150 put up nearly identical numbers to the original Vector drive on the ATTO benchmark with both effectively topping out with some of the best scores in the comparison.

AS-SSD (1.6.4237.30508) Benchmark – Intel Z77 Platform:

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.

AS-SSD Bench AS-SSD Grid

Benchmark Results: It’s with mixed data types that the Vector 150 shines with barely a noticeable performance impact which gives it great overall numbers.

AS-SSD Compression Bench

Benchmark Results: As evidenced by the graph above, the level of compressibility of the data being processed makes no difference in the performance.

    Sad situation, 5 year warranty but we don’t know where OCZ will be in 5 months.

      Oh, they’ll still be around. I don’t approve of some of their business practices along with a lack of transparency. I jumped ship to Intel a few years back after the little stunt they pulled with their Vertex II SSD’s

        WOW! I stand corrected……. OCZ is toast.

        • WhizKid

          OCZ was not toast after all and has some solid backing now.

          On January 21, 2014 the assets of OCZ Technology Group became a new
          independently-operated subsidiary of the Toshiba Corporation named OCZ Storage

          BTW: These drives are currently on sale at great prices!
