Testing – ATTO Disk Benchmark & CrystalDiskMark
Next up we have ATTO Disk Benchmark that measures transfer rates across specific lengths
The results here were quite interesting as the read score was the highest out of the 3 test drives, but the write score was the lowest. CrystalDiskMark is our next test and it has a sequential read / write test as well as a 512k and 4k random read / write test. Keep in mind that SandForce-based drives usually do score lower in this test.
We saw a big drop in performance from the 40GB to the 60GB drive in this test. The 40GB drive was significantly lower.
