ADATA XPG SX8200 M.2 SSD Review – 480GB Model Tested


ATTO & CrystalDiskMark

ATTO v3.05

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 64MB transfer sizes with the total length being 256MB.

ATTO – ADATA XPG SX8200 M.2 480GB:

Benchmark Results: ATTO Disk Benchmark had the ADATA XPG SX8200 480GB M.2 PCIe NVMe drive reaching speeds of up to 3,115 MB/s read and 1,777 MB/s write in the standard overlapped I/O benchmark. Really strong results from a budget friendly TLC NAND Flash drive!

Benchmark Results: Compared to some other SATA III and PCIe NVMe SSDs, the ADATA XPG SX8200 480GB drives performance was pretty much exactly the same as the HP SSD EX920 1TB drive as the two lines on the chart are basically undisquisable.

Benchmark Results: The ATTO write performance numbers on the ADATA XPG SX8200 are among the fastest of any 480/500/512 GB drive that we have recently tested with speeds hitting over 1750 MB/s.

CrystalDiskMark 6.0.0 x64

CrystalDiskMark is a small benchmark utility for drives and enables rapid measurement of sequential and random read/write speeds. Note that CDM only supports Native Command Queuing (NCQ) with a queue depth of 32 (as noted) and shows the highest score of five runs.

CystalDiskmark – ADATA XPG SX8200 M.2 480GB:

Benchmark Results: The SX8200 480GB SSD topped out at 3209.6 MB/s read and 1728.8 MB/s write in the standard sequential write test that is done at QD32. Random 4K QD1 performance was 66 MB/s read and 154 MB/s write. Really impressive performance numbers here!
