Following up next is our usual ATTO read and write tests. ATTO is one of my favorite benchmarks for quite a while. Ever since we have started using it in my network attached storage reviews a few years ago, it has been integral to our battery of storage performance evaluations here at APH Networks -- mainly due to its accuracy, and thorough testing in accordance to varying transfer sizes. As you can see in our graphs above, the Patriot Supersonic Magnum 2 256GB has a very interesting performance curve. In the Write section, it was pretty average at 32K and under, but once it hit 64K, a VTEC just kicked in yo! moment happened, going a measly from 10.192MB/s to a whopping 115.395MB/s. There were a few dips down to the 80MB/s range after, but it peaked at an impressive 143.953MB/s, with most data points sustained in the 130MB/s range. This was about 150% to 200% the performance of the original Supersonic Magnum, and a four-fold increase compared to the Supersonic Rage 2 of the same capacity. In the Read section, the ramp up was much more normal. The Supersonic Magnum 2 completely outperformed its predecessor; peaking at 275.036MB/s, but trailed the Supersonic Rage 2 at 337.751MB/s.
