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 are 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 compression-heavy controllers will perform very well here; as far as the Phison E12 controller is concerned -- well, here are our results. As manufacturer peak read and write performance ratings are usually achieved using ATTO, whether a drive lives up to its marketing claims or not can be validated by this program. Patriot claims the Viper VPN100 512GB's maximum read and maximum write are pinned at 3300MB/s and 2,200MB/s, respectively. According to our tests, these numbers were slightly underrated. It peaked at 3455.109MB/s read and 2263.154MB/s write. Under the curve, its write speed was quite comparable to the ADATA XPG SX8200 Pro 512GB, albeit coming just behind the Silicon Motion SM2262EN-based drive every time. In the read test, we can see a similar story. The Patriot Hellfire 240GB also had faster ramp up in both read and write compared to the Viper VPN100 512GB, but the VPN100 has significantly higher peak read.
