Following up next is our usual ATTO read and write tests. ATTO is one of my favorite benchmarks for quite a while. Ever since we have started using it in my network attached storage reviews a few years ago, it has been integral to our battery of storage performance evaluations here at APH Networks mainly due to its accuracy and thorough testing in accordance to varying transfer sizes. As you can see in our graphs above, the Crucial X8 1TB's read performance and write performance were both extremely fast; peaking at 1050.114MB/s for read and 1032.444/s for write. The tested read figure is right on the advertised speed. Under the curve, the Crucial X8 1TB reached maximum performance for everything 256K and above. Both its ramp up speed and peak speed was, once again, considerably faster than any USB flash drive as demonstrated in the posted comparison charts. The ramp up speed was quite similar to the LaCie Mobile SSD until 32K in write and 64K for read, where the X8 ran very far away.
