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.

When it comes to the ATTO Disk Benchmark, this is one test we love to throw at all our products. This easy-to-use and accurate test however will undoubtedly favor SandForce based SSDs due to the use of easily compressible data. As the Barefoot 3 drives do not use on the fly compression, the OCZ ARC 100 will be at a disadvantage. When we look at maximum write and read speeds, the OCZ ARC 100 240GB pulls in numbers of 448MB/s and 504MB/s. This is close to OCZ's specifications of 450MB/s and 490MB/s read and write speeds, respectively, which is good to see. In comparison to other drives, this drive most closely matches, and defeats, the OCZ Agility 4 256GB, which is another older Indilinx drive. I should still note this is still below both the Vertex 460 and the Vector 150, OCZ's other current drives at the current time, but this is also expected. Otherwise, the OCZ ARC 100 follows the same curve trend we see from almost all our other tested SSDs.
