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.

ATTO – Intel Z77 Platform – Single Drive:


Intel 730 ATTOATTO – Intel Z77 Platform – Raid 0:

Intel 730 RAID ATTO

Benchmark Results: Clearly the RAID 0 configuration rocks and the single drive scores hit max speeds that are right on the specifications which are a little slower in the writes department than a handful of other drives we’ve tested but we know that many of those other drives take performance hits on the other benchmarks.


AS-SSD (1.6.4237.30508) Benchmark – Intel Z77 Platform:

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.

Single Drive:

Intel 730 AS-SSD


Intel 730 RAID

Benchmark Results: We see very consistent performance coming off of the ATTO benchmark as the scores are mostly unchanged which is a good sign and means that performance is not predicated on data composition.


Intel 730 AS-SSD

Benchmark Results: As further proof of consistent performance, the graph shows an indifference towards the data whether compressible or not.
