Up next is our usual ATTO read and write tests. ATTO has been one of our longest lasting benchmarks over the time. Ever since we have started using it in our network attached storage reviews many 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. From the graphs above, the Western Digital Black P50 Game Drive SSD 1TB's read performance and write performance were both extremely fast; peaking at 1032.444MB/s for read and 999.1398MB/s for write. Once again, we were limited by the interface we could test with. However, this ranked in third place against all our tested drives, falling behind the LaCie Rugged SSD 1TB and the Crucial X8 1TB. In terms of ramp up, the Western Digital was actually quite fast to reach its peak speed in write performance, matching the Rugged SSD at practically all of the packet sizes of 64KB and under. However, in the read tests, the drive was slower to reach its peak than the other two aforementioned drives, lining up closely with the Lexar SL100 Pro at smaller packet sizes.
