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 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 Patriot Hellfire M.2 240GB 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. Patriot claims the Hellfire M.2 240GB's maximum read and maximum write are pinned at 3000MB/s and 2300MB/s, respectively. According to our tests, these numbers were almost bang on. It peaked at 2975.269MB/s read and 2391.999MB/s write. This is the best we have ever seen on this website. Under the curve, things looked a little fit funky. In the write category, we have seen faster ramp ups, and it was quite progressive until it reached near-peak at 128K. From 4K to 16K, the RD400A was significantly faster. In the read category, a different observation could be made. It was pretty close to the Kingston HyperX Predator PCIe 480GB's unbelievably fast 0.5K to 2K, but beyond that, the RD400A had an advantage between 4K and 8K. From 16K forward, the Patriot Hellfire M.2 240GB was the fastest drive we have tested here at APH Networks, reaching near-peak at 128K once again. Needless to say, the Patriot Hellfire M.2 240GB did generally really well in this benchmark.
