ATTO & AS-SSD Benchmarks
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: Admittedly, we were a bit surprised to see that the read scores were some of the best we’ve seen on an mSATA drive and equally surprised that the write scores weren’t a little higher although the 128GB drive will be a bit slower than the 256GB.
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.
Benchmark Results: It’s always good to see when drive performance on the AS-SSD benchmark equals that of what it puts out on the ATTO benchmark which means data compressibility has no impact on performance.
Benchmark Results: To illustrate the above point, the zero slope of the graph lines show no correlation between data compressibility and performance.
