Western Digital Black PCIe Gen3x4 NVMe 512GB SSD Review

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.


WD quote performance figures for the 512GB version of the PCIe Black at up to 2,050MB/s for reads and up to 800MB/s writes. Both these figures were confirmed when the drive was tested with the ATTO benchmark, the review drive producing a read figure of 2,014 MB/s while writes came in at 813MB/s.
