PNY XLR8 CS3150 Gen5 Solid State Drive Review

Testing – ATTO, CrystalDiskMark & AS SSD

Keep in mind for testing the advertised speeds for this drive are 11,500 MB/s read and 8,500 MB/s write.

Our first test is ATTO Disk Benchmark. It 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.

CrystalDiskMark is our next test and it has a sequential read / write test as well as a 512k and 4k random read / write test.
