ATTO is one of the oldest drive benchmarks still being used today and still 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: There’s no question that the Patriot Inferno is burning up the ATTO benchmark (pun intended). Compared to the other non-RAID drives, the Inferno performs admirably and its scores place it firmly in the top few spots for this benchmark.
AS SSD Benchmark
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: Again we see the scores consistent with the other SandForce drives although the sequential writes seem a bit lower than we’d expect when looking at some of the other drives.
