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 the Corsair MP600 CORE 1TB model is hit speeds of up 5.26 GB/s read and 1.82 GB/s write as our primary boot drive filled to 55% capacity. There were some low speeds observed on the write side that were likely due to garbage collection or other wear leveling operations taking place during the test. With the drive empty we didn’t notice any performance dips like this and it only happened when it was being used as the primary drive.
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.

Real Performance Preset
Benchmark Results: The Corsair MP600 CORE 1TB NVMe SSD finished this benchmark at 4,717.13 MB/s read and 1,943.36 MB/s write on CrystalDiskMark 7! The Random 4K performance at QD1 was 63 MB/s read and 194 MB/s write. The official speed ratings on CrystalDiskmark are up to 4,700 MB/s read and 1,950 MB/s wrote, so we are happy with these numbers.
