Samsung 870 EVO Solid State Drive Review

Testing – Sandra & ATTO
Keep in mind for testing the advertised speeds for this drive are 550 MB/s read and 530 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 531.33 MB/s whereas the write score was 502.77 MB/s.

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.
