Page 4 - Benchmark: ATTO Disk Benchmark

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 Silicon Motion SM2262EN controller is concerned -- well, here are our results. As manufacturer peak read and write performance ratings are usually achieved using ATTO, whether a drive lives up to its marketing claims or not can be validated by this program. Kingston claims the KC2500 1TB's maximum read and maximum write are pinned at 3500MB/s and 2900MB/s, respectively. The tested results were quite close to the advertised figures. It peaked at 3230.636MB/s read and 2784.354MB/s write. Under the curve, its write speed was very similar to the Seagate FireCuda 510 1TB until 32K, where the FireCuda 510 pulled way ahead thereafter. This means the KC2500's write ramp up speed was quite a bit faster than the Western Digital Black SN750 NVMe SSD 1TB, although the SN750 had a higher peak speed. In the read test, the Seagate FireCuda 510 1TB and Kingston KC2500 1TB were almost identical. The KC2500 and SN750 flipped back and forth in the read ramp up speed, but the SN750 ended up pulling ahead in the end. For the most part, the KC2500 1TB's performance was very good.
