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 Z97 Platform:

Benchmark Results: ATTO shows the best case performance scenario and we find that the SanDisk Ultra II puts out some strong numbers – especially on reads.

AS-SSD (1.7.4739.38088) Benchmark – Intel Z97 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: Not much of a dropoff in performance coming from the ATTO benchmark which is always a good sign. Compared to OCZ’s budget ARC drive, performance was better in nearly every metric.

Benchmark Results: As expected, the level of data compressibility plays not part in performance as we see nice zero slope graph lines.

    Is it a waste for me to get this drive versus the Plus model with nCache 1.0 since I am connecting to a Sata II (3.0gb/s) port?
