Intel SSD DC P4600 - 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 P4600 offered middling write performance in this benchmark, but reads trailed only the Optane drive.


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 Intel SSD DC P4600 performed similarly to the P3700, here. In the read test, the Intel SSD DC P4600 pulled ahead of the P3700 once the transfer size exceeded the 256K mark. In the write test, however, the P4600 was a touch slower across the board. Overall, the drive's performance is in the lower-third in this benchmark.
