ADATA SX8200 M.2 NVMe SSD: SANDRA And ATTO Benchmarks

Next we ran SiSoft SANDRA 2017, the the System ANalyzer, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant. Here, we used the Physical Disk test suite and provide the results from our comparison SSDs. The benchmarks were run on clean drives that lacked any partions. Read and write performance metrics are detailed below.

Synthetic Disk Benchmarking

The ADATA XPG SX8200 finishes about in the middle of the pack in SANDRA's Physical Disk benchmark. Reads are very strong, but writes are roughly half that of the Samsung and WD drives.
ATTO Disk Benchmark

ATTO is another "quick and dirty" type of disk benchmark that measures transfer speeds across a specific volume length. It measures raw transfer rates for both reads and writes and graphs them out in an easily interpreted chart. We chose .5KB through 64MB transfer sizes and a queue depth of 6 over a total max volume length of 256MB. ATTO's workloads are sequential in nature and measure raw bandwidth, rather than I/O response time, access latency, etc.

The ATTO Disk Benchmark tells essentially the same story as SANDRA. The ADATA XPG SX8200's reads are competitive with some of the faster drives tested, but writes land about in the middle of the pack.
