The official Sequential read/write figures for the 500GB version of the drive are 560MB/s and 530MB/s respectively, figures that were bang on the money when the drive is tested with the ATTO benchmark – the tested drive producing 564MB/s for reads and 534MB/s for writes. The WD Blue 3D NAND is at the top of the ATTO performance graph for this class of drive, albeit by a very fine margin.
