To test, we attached a Patriot Wildfire 120GB SSD to ascertain SATA 6Gbps performance.
A very important part of overall system responsiveness is down to hard drive performance. We use two of our favourite benchmark utilities Crystalmark X64 Edition and HD Tach to rate the Samsung SSD from the onboard SATA controller.
One of the best results we have achieved with this particular drive, scoring over 505 MB/s in the sequential read test. Extremely impressive.
The ATTO Disk Benchmark performance measurement tool is compatible with Microsoft Windows. Measure your storage systems performance with various transfer sizes and test lengths for reads and writes. Several options are available to customize your performance measurement including queue depth, overlapped I/O and even a comparison mode with the option to run continuously. Use ATTO Disk Benchmark to test any manufacturers RAID controllers, storage controllers, host adapters, hard drives and SSD drives and notice that ATTO products will consistently provide the highest level of performance to your storage.
Again, very strong performance results in both read and write tests, peaking around 500 MB/s in the write test and 550MB/s in the read test.
