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've grown to embrace it as much as the next for the last little while. ATTO uses easily compressible data, so SandForce based SSDs will perform very well here. Like the AIDA64 linear read performance evaluation completed on the previous page, it seems to have skipped the hard disk drive almost entirely right from the start -- otherwise I would have heard it with the loud seeking noise generated by the Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB, haha. I am not entirely sure why there is a dip in write after the 256KB mark, but we are not the only website with these results.
