We are testing performance today with two of our favourite programs. MSI bundle a 500GB 7,200 rpm drive with this laptop.
Crystalmark is a useful benchmark to measure theoretical performance levels of hard drives and SSD’s. We are using V3.0 x64.
A 7,200 rpm 2.5 inch drive is expected to score around 100 MB/s in sequential testing, and as such it falls in line with what we would expect. 4k performance is obviously significantly lower than an SSD drive.
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.
Results from the Atto Disk Benchmark match the CrystalDiskMark findings, with the drive peaking around the 100 MB/s mark. It is a solid performer.
