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 WD80EFZX 8TB was quite competitive. Its ramp up to 16K was a significant improvement over its 4TB and 6TB counterparts. On the other hand, it pulled lower peak rates than the 6TB model, although it was faster than the 4TB variant. This came in at 189.483MB/s, which was better than the WD40EFRX at 174.308MB/s, but not the WD60EFRX at 201.075MB/s. In the Write section, its initial ramp up was quite similar to the WD60EFRX, but posted a sizable lead between 4K and 16K. With a top write speed of 192.533MB/s, this, was better than both the WD Red 4TB and 6TB.
