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. By varying the file transfer size, you can visually see how each product performs across the curve. In the Read section, the Western Digital Black WD6001FZWX 6TB was a class of its own. Its ramp up speed blew away all the Seagate drives, which traditionally performed very well in this area. It reached close to peak rate at 2K and above, which is unusually quick. Its peak rate came in at 231.409MB/s, which is second only to the WD Red Pro 6TB at 261.251MB/s, but still the first HDD we have tested to crack the 200MB/s mark here at APH Networks. In the Write section, it reached its peak rate at 4K and above. With a top write speed of 255.045MB/s, this, again, was incredible. Meanwhile, the WD Red Pro 6TB peaked at 265.777MB/s, but for the most part, both drives were very close majority of the time.
