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 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 Western Digital 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. Western Digital claims the Black NVMe SSD 1TB's maximum read and maximum write are pinned at 3400MB/s and 2800MB/s, respectively. According to our tests, these numbers were slightly underrated. It peaked at 3456.125MB/s read and 2864.199MB/s write. Under the curve, its write speed was slower than the RD400A and Hellfire M.2 until 4K, where they were eclipsed by the Black NVMe. We can see a similar pattern as we move into the read graph, except the Hellfire held on until 256K. At 512K or higher, the Western Digital Black NVMe SSD 1TB ran away to be the fastest SSD in ATTO we have ever tested here at APH Networks.
