Patriot Wildfire 120GB 6Gb/s 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.

It looks like we have a new top dog in solid state drives!  The Wildfire drive just barely beat out the Corsair Force GT in the ATTO Benchmark.

CrystalDiskMark is our next test and it has a sequential read / write test as well as a 512k and 4k random read / write test.  For the past few reviews I had wondered why CrystalDiskMark was giving such weird results.  That is because the basic test uses incompressible data.  Those results are below.

Obviously you can see the write scores are very low.  If we run the test again using 0 Fill or compressible data we get better results.
