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 compression-heavy controllers will perform very well here; as far as the Phison S11 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. Toshiba claims the TR200 480GB's maximum read and maximum write are pinned at 555MB/s and 540MB/s, respectively. According to our tests, these numbers were slightly underrated. It peaked at 563.151MB/s read and 545.354MB/s write. Under the curve, it was very similar to the TL100 240GB in write, but the TL100 was slightly faster in read. With the changes in controller and flash memory, the 64 layer BiCS TLC based Toshiba OCZ TR200 480GB gave up quite a bit in read performance compared to its predecessor, although its write ramp up speed was better. That said, the TR200 consistently performed better than the Crucial BX300 240GB across the board, as well as the Kingston UV400 480GB for anything 4K and above.
