Testing – HDTune Pro & ATTO
HD Tune Pro is one of the most popular hard drive software suites available. It has many different benchmarks and tests built into it. The benchmark that we mainly focus on is the file benchmark. It has two separate tests. The first tests a file size (500MB for our test) and gives you sequential read and write speeds. It also gives you IOPS for 4KB random single and 4K random multi. We can see good results from the first test. The second test, tests different transfer speeds over specific file lengths. We can see that the SX300 performs right up to its specifications/
ATTO Disk Benchmark also measures transfer rates across specific lengths. ATTO uses RAW data, our transfer sizes ranged from 0.5 to 8192kb. ATTO is usually our definitive benchmark for solid state drives.
Looking at the results here we can again see that the drive performed right up to its specifications.
