ATTO Disk Benchmark Tests

ATTO is a more straight-forward type of disk benchmark that measures transfers 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 8192kb transfer sizes over a total max volume length of 256MB. This test was performed on blank, formatted drives with NTFS partitions.

Starting to notice a trend yet? Once again, the 310 SSD performed exactly as advertised -- and even a little faster -- and so did the Intel X25-M. And sure, Intel's SSDs are no longer the fastest on the block, but give the chip maker credit for not artificially inflating transfer speeds with theoretical ratings you're not likely to see on a day-to-day basis.
