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 Red WD60EFRX 6TB was quite comparable to the 4TB model. Its ramp up was not bad, but it was it did not have anything to write home about. On the other hand, it pulled higher peak rates than its smaller brother. This came in at 201.075MB/s, which was better than the WD40EFRX at 174.308MB/s -- and impressively, even the WD Red Pro 4TB at 194.049MB/s. In the Write section, its initial ramp up was almost twice as fast as the WD40EFRX, which blew me away. With a top write speed of 189.196MB/s, this, again, was better than the WD Red Pro 4TB. Meanwhile, the WD Red Pro 6TB peaked at 265.777MB/s, but that is a whole different class of drives.
