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 IO response time, access latency etc. This test was performed on blank, formatted drives with default NTFS partitions in Windows 7 x64.

The Intel 510 Series SSD offered the seconds best sequential reads and writes of the bunch. The 510 Series SSD finished significantly ahead of the previous generation drives in this benchmark, but the SF-2000 based OCZ Vertex 3 head a clear advantage across the board.
