OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G 240GB Solid State Drive Review

Testing – ATTO Disk Benchmark & CrystalDiskMark
Next up we have ATTO Disk Benchmark that 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.

What great results here, maxing out at 559MB/s read and 518MB/s read!

CrystalDiskMark is our next test and it has a sequential read / write test as well as a 512k and 4k random read / write test.  When testing solid state drives make sure you are running this test at 0 Fill, which uses compressible data.
