ATTO Disk Benchmark

ATTO is a more straight-forward type of disk benchmark that measures transfers 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 8kb through 1024kb transfer sizes over a total max volume length of 32MB.  This test was performed on blank, formatted drives with NTFS partitions.

OCZ Apex Series 120GB SSD

Intel X25-M 80GB MLC

WD VelociRaptor 300GB HD


OCZ Standard SLC 64GB

OCZ Core Series 64GB

Super Talent MasterDrive MX 64GB

The OCZ Apex Series SSD performed very well in the ATTO Disk Benchmark.  At the risk of sounding like a broken record, once again, the Intel X25 came out on top in terms of overall performance--especially considering its Read performance, but the OCZ Apex Series drive did very well in writes and clearly outpaced the other drives.
