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: Scorching hot performance here with performance that exceeds the Vertex 450 and virtually equals the Vector drive. We’re not sure what’s up with the read anomaly on the 32K test but it persisted no matter how many times we ran the benchmark.
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.
Benchmark Results: It’s always good to see the performance numbers not drop a ton when moving to the AS-SSD benchmark from ATTO which is the case here. The Vertex 450, 460 and Vector drives all perform more or less the same.
Benchmark Results: An absence of graph slope portrays the consistent performance regardless of the level of data compressibility.
