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.

The next tests 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. For the XPG Atom 30 1TB, this drive peaked at 2150MB/s write and 2658MB/s read. These numbers are both higher than the quoted maximum speed, which is good to see. On the other hand, it is still on the slower side of PCIe 3.0-based NVMe drives. Under the write curve, the XPG Atom 30 1TB was a bit slower to reach its peak speeds. At smaller packet sizes, it was slightly behind the Crucial P1 and Patriot P300, while being faster than some older drives like the ADATA SX8200 Pro and Patriot Viper VPN100. As for the read curve, the XPG Atom 30 1TB was the fourth slowest drive for peak speeds. Furthermore, it was quite a bit slower to reach its peak speeds, with even slower drives like the Patriot P300 being faster at the smallest packet sizes. Compared to the WD Blue SN570, both of these drives were slow under the curve, but at least the SN570 peaked at notably higher write and read numbers.

Moving to the ADATA SU670 Ultimate 250GB, the drive peaked at 519MB/s write and 537MB/s read. Once again, these numbers were higher than the quoted maximum speeds. In terms of peak speeds, the SU670 ranked in the bottom half of the drives, even if the difference between top and bottom was around 20MB/s at most. This was true for both read and write results as the SU670 had the slowest read numbers in our ATTO tests. Under the curve, the SU670 Ultimate struggled mightily. This SSD posted some of the slowest ramp up numbers, as you can see the single curved line below the rest. Neither of these results are very flattering for the SU670 Ultimate, so let us carry on.
