Testing – Si Soft Sandra and ATTO
Si Soft Sandra
For Si Soft Sandra, we ran the physical disks read and write benchmark on our Team Group EX2 Elite SSD. On the read test, our EX2 Elite SSD achieved a drive score of 532 MB/s. As for the write test, our EX2 Elite SSD got a drive score of 459.68 MB/s. The read speed was very close to the advertised read speed of 5500 MB/s. However, the write speed was a fair bit under the advertised write speed of 520 MB/s.
ATTO Disk Benchamrk
ATTO Disk Benchmark is one of the most used disk benchmarks out there and my personal go-to for testing drives quickly. ATTO measures disk performance rates for various sizes of files and displays the results in a bar chart showing read and write speeds at each file size, as well as random read and write IOPS. In the ATTO Disk Benchmark, our EX2 Elite SSD achieved a max read speed of 531.54 MB/s and a max write speed of 481 MB/s. As for the IOPS test, the EX2 Elite SSD hit a max random read IOPS of 77k and a max read IOPS of 60.52k.
