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 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; the OCZ Vertex 3.20 240GB is no exception. As manufacturer peak read and write performance ratings are usually done in ATTO, whether a drive lives up to its marketing claims or not can be validated by this program. OCZ claims the Vertex 3 3.20's maximum read and maximum write are both pinned at 550MB/s and 520MB/s, respectively. According to our tests, these numbers are quite accurate. It peaked at 552.8MB/s read and 530.2MB/s write in the curves demonstrated in our charts above. The read figures are slightly below its brawnier brother, but it actually outperformed the Vertex 3 Max IOPS 240GB in the write tests by about 10MB/s peak. Under the curve, the Vertex 3 MI is still measurably better on average, but this is to be expected.
