Testing – Sandra & ATTO
Keep in mind for testing the advertised speeds for this drive are 530 MB/s read and 500 MB/s write.
Our first test is SiSoftware Sandra’s Physical Disks benchmark. We run both the read performance and write performance tests. Click on the images below to see the full-size results.
The read test yielded 533.4 MB/s whereas the write score was 493.3 MB/s, a good start indeed!
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.
Here we see the drive maxing out at around 537 MB/s for the read and 500 MB/s for the write.
