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 Patriot Viper VP4100 1TB model is rated as reaching speeds of up 4.7 GB/s read and 4.2 GB/s write as an empty secondary drive. On our primary boot drive filled to 55% capacity we managed to get the VP4100 SSD up to 5.24 GB/s read and 3.96 GB/s write.
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 Patriot Viper VP4100 1TB NVMe SSD finished this benchmark at 5,001 MB/s read and 4,267 MB/s write on CrystalDiskMark 7! The Random 4K performance at QD1 was 60 MB/s read and 210 MB/s write. The official speed ratings on CrystalDiskmark are up to 5,000 MB/s read and 4,400 MB/s wrote, so we are pretty close to those numbers.
