Testing – HDTune Pro & ATTO
Keep in mind for testing the advertised speeds for this drive are 2600 MB/s read and 1600 MB/s write.
HD Tune Pro is one of the most popular hard drive software suites available. It has many different benchmarks and tests built into it. The benchmark that we mainly focus on is the file benchmark. It has two separate tests. The first tests a file size (500MB for our test) and gives you sequential read and write speeds. It also gives you IOPS for 4KB random single and 4K random multi.
Here we can see the drive sort of starts slow, but speeds up as the test goes along. Next we have the file transfer test.
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.
As you can see we have some very impressive speeds here, basically maxing out the drive!
