Intel SSD DC P4510 NVMe PCIe Review: Blistering 3GB/s Transfers, With Low Latency

Intel SSD DC P4510 - 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 Intel SSD DC P4510 2TB drive put up some strong read speeds here, with middling writes. The 8TB drive, however, took the pole position and outpaced every other drive we tested in both the read and write tests.

ATTO Disk Benchmark
More Information Here:

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 Intel SSD DC P4510 8TB once again led the pack overall in terms of write throughput. The 2TB drive peaked at about 2GB/s in the write test, and landed about in the middle of the pack. Reads weren't quite as strong with the smaller transfer sizes, but things turned around at about the 4MB mark, where the P4510's shot back up to the top of the heap.
