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.
Benchmark Results: The performance between all three Crucial drives is similar with the BX100 trailing a bit in the writes which is expected based on the specifications but overall pretty strong. Pretty much on par with the older MX100 drives as well.
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: The AS-SSD benchmark tends to be a little harder on drives, especially in the writes department and all three drives comes out very well with performance that’s nearly identical save for the final score in which the BX100 trails by just a bit. Again, it’s a little weaker in the writes department.
Benchmark Results: All three drives show that data compression doesn’t play a factor in performance as the compression benchmark graph shows no slope.
