Following up next is 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 SandForce based SSDs and similar will perform very well here; as far as the Toshiba TC58 is concerned -- well, here are our results. As manufacturer peak read and write performance ratings are usually obtained using ATTO, whether a drive lives up to its marketing claims or not can be validated by this program. OCZ claims the Trion 150 480GB's maximum read and maximum write are pinned at 550MB/s and 530MB/s, respectively. According to our tests, these numbers were slightly underrated. It peaked at 565.789MB/s read and 539.267MB/s write. Under the curve, it was very similar to the OCZ Trion 100 480GB. However, with the changes in firmware and flash memory, the 15nm TLC based OCZ Trion 150 480GB had a slightly faster write and read ramp up speed than its predecessor. The OCZ Trion 150 480GB's ramp up was also quite a bit better than the OCZ ARC 100 and Crucial BX100 in the read category; even edging out the SanDisk Ultra II, which was formerly one of the best in the category. As far as write is concerned, the Trion 150 compared favorably against the ARC 100, but the BX100, MX200, and Ultra II all had much faster ramp ups.
