MDSSD TweakTown Chris Ramseyer Signature Edition by SuperSSpeed 128GB SLC SSD Review - Benchmarks - Test System Setup and ATTO Baseline Performance

By: Chris Ramseyer | SSDs in Storage | Posted: Sep 27, 2012 7:12 am



We would like to thank the following companies for supplying and supporting us with our test system hardware and equipment: AVADirect, GIGABYTE, LSI, Corsair and Noctua.


You can read more about TweakTown's Storage Product Testing Workstation and the procedures followed to test products in this article.


In order to fully utilize SATA III you need a system with native SATA III support. P67, Z68, Z77 and X79 systems are preferred, but AMD has made advances in their newer SATA III systems as well. Older X58 systems with Marvell based SATA III ports do not deliver the same high levels of performance, so we recommend newer systems when available.



ATTO Baseline Performance


Version and / or Patch Used: 2.34


ATTO is used by many disk manufacturers to determine the read and write speeds that will be presented to customers.




In ATTO we determined the baseline performance at just under 560MB/s read and nearly 535MB/s write speeds. The 4K write speed is just over 240MB/s which is very good as well.




The fastest consumer SSD on the market wouldn't be complete without the best consumer SSD review. Using our GIGABYTE Z77X-UD5 with a modified BIOS with the 11.5 OROM and Intel 11.6 drivers (on the for the RAID tests) we give you RAID 0 performance. The new drivers and OROM BIOS allow us to test RAID 0 with TRIM working!


When it comes to RAID 0 performance... well, how does over 1000MB/s read and write sound? That is 1GB/s, not bad at all.
