Gigabyte AORUS Gen4 7000s SSD Review


ATTO & CrystalDiskMark

ATTO v4.01.0f1

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 Disk Benchmark:

AORUS 7000s 1TB:

AORUS 7000s 2TB:

Benchmark Results: On ATTO Disk Benchmark the AORUS Gen4 7000s 1TB model is hit speeds of up 6.9 GB/s read and 5.07 GB/s write as our primary boot drive filled to 55% capacity. The 7000s 2TB SSD hit 6.97 GB/s read and 6.38 GB/s write speeds.

CrystalDiskMark 7.0.0 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.


Peak Performance Preset

Real Performance Preset

Benchmark Results: The AORUS Gen4 7000s 1TB NVMe SSD finished this benchmark at 7095.84 MB/s read and 5527.82 MB/s write on CrystalDiskMark 7! The AORUS Gen4 7000s 2TB SSD bested that with speeds of 7176.31 MB/s read and 6760.44 MB/s write. Random 4K performance at QD1 was around 69MB/s read and 226 MB/s write on both drives.
