HyperX Predator M.2 PCIe SSDs in RAID 0 – Hitting 2.8GB/s


ATTO & AS-SSD Benchmarks

ATTO v2.47

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.

Software RAID0:


Benchmark Results: ATTO showed the HyperX Predator M.2 PCIe SSD maxing out at 1556 MB/s read and 966MB/s in the standard overlapped I/O benchmark with one drive by itself. With the pair of drives setup as a striped dynamic volume in Windows 8.1 Pro we were able to get 2894MB/s read and 1739MB/s write! These are some seriously fast sequential performance numbers!

AS-SSD (1.7.4739.38088) Benchmark:

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 all three of them.

Software RAID0:


Benchmark Results: AS SSD showed the single HyperX Predator 480GB M.2 PCIe SSD topping out at 1452 MB/s read and 882 MB/s write in the sequential benchmark. With a dynamic striped volume we were getting 2676 MB/s read and 1424 MB/s write in the sequential benchmark. The 4K read and write speeds remained the same despite the RAID setup, so we were looking at roughly 39MB/s on the 4K reads and 102MB/s on the 4K writes.

Benchmark Results: The AS SSD copy benchmark showed the speed topping out at 861 MB/s in the game test with one HyperX Predator 480GB M.2 PCIe SSD, but with two drives we were able to hit 1429 MB/s on the same workload!

Benchmark Results: Compression performance was similar between the single drive and dynamic volume other than their speeds.
