Kingston KC2000 NVMe SSD: SANDRA And ATTO Benchmarks

Next we used SiSoft SANDRA, the the System ANalyzer, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant for some quick tests. 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 partitions. Read and write performance metrics are detailed below.

We are only a couple of pages in, but are seeing a trend already -- the Kingston KC2000 remains competitive with the fastest drives in the group, but ultimately finishes about in the middle of the pack.
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.

In ATTO's read and write tests, the Kingston KC2000 is among the highest performing drives at the smallest of transfer sizes. Once the transfer size exceeds the 128k mark, however, performance tapers and is in-line with the WD Blue SN500.
