About ATTO Disk Benchmark

The ATTO Disk Benchmark performance measurement tool is compatible with Microsoft Windows. Measure your storage systems performance with various transfer sizes and test lengths for reads and writes. Several options are available to customize your performance measurement including queue depth, overlapped I/O and even a comparison mode with the option to run continuously. Use ATTO Disk Benchmark to test any manufacturers RAID controllers, storage controllers, host adapters, hard drives and SSD drives and notice that ATTO products will consistently provide the highest level of performance to your storage.

Following up next are our usual ATTO read and write tests. ATTO is an often-quoted benchmark because it is easy to use and accurate. For the most part, it is a favorite among reviewers, and I have grown to embrace it as much as the next for the last little while. ATTO uses easily compressible data, so compression-heavy controllers will perform very well here.

As far as the Phison PS5027-E27 controller on the MP600 Elite 2TB is concerned, well, here are our results. The Corsair MP600 Elite 2TB peaked at 6550MB/s read and 5440MB/s write. Under the read curve, it was almost identical to the MP600 Core XT and Crucial T500 2TB up to 16K, where all of them feature the same generation of Phison controllers, albeit different models. It was very comparable to the Kingston FURY Renegade 1TB up to 16K as well, which is one of the best PCIe 4.0-based NVMe SSDs. Surprisingly, the MP600 Elite 2TB fell behind its budget basic brother at 32K and above, being about 400MB/s slower.

Under the write curve, the Corsair MP600 Elite 2TB was very comparable to the MP600 Core XT and Crucial T500 2TB up to 16K, just like the read curve. That said, its peak speed was almost 1GB/s faster than its budget basic brother, which is great. However, it could not keep up with the Crucial P3 Plus series, which are ultra-budget SSDs. Overall, the Corsair MP600 Elite 2TB's performance was pretty good for a mainstream drive in this test, thanks to the fast PCIe 4.0 interface.
