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.
Benchmark Results: On ATTO Disk Benchmark found the addlink X70 1TB NVMe SSD peaked at 3.24 GB/s read and 2.76 GB/s write at the standard queue depth of 4.
When we chart the 128KB test results from ATTO Disk Benchmark, the addlink X70 performs exceptionally well with 128KB chunks of data!
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.
Benchmark Results: The Addlink X70 1TB drive came in with scores of 3455 MB/s read and 2986 MB/s write on CrystalDiskMark 7. This drive is rated as being up to 3400 MB/s read and 3000 MB/s write, so we are close enough to those speed ratings to be happy. Keep in mind that we aren’t testing a bare secondary drive, but rather a system drive that is filled 55% full!
