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 8192kb 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. This test was performed on blank, formatted drives with default NTFS partitions in Windows 7 x64.

The new Intel DC S3700 series drives also performed very well in the ATTO Disk Benchmark. Here, the single drive DC S3700 configurations were competitive across the board and were only outpaced by the SandForce based drives. When paired up in two-drive RAID 0 configurations, the DC S3700 series drives also offered up strong performance that trailed only the Intel SSD 520 series RAID 0 setup.
