Desktop Test System
The majority of our testing will be done with our test drive/array as our boot volume. Our boot volume is 75% full for all OS Disk "C" drive testing, in order to mimic a typical consumer OS volume implementation. We're using 64K stripes for all of our arrays. Write caching is enabled.
Our testing includes charting the performance of a single drive, as well as a RAID 0 array of our test subject/s. We are utilizing Windows 8.1 64 Bit OS for all of our testing.
ATTO Baseline Performance
Version and / or Patch Used: 2.47
ATTO is a timeless benchmark used to provide manufacturers with data used for marketing storage products.
Performance ramps up quickly, hitting full speed by 8K transfers.
Our tiny array starts out performing very well, with better write performance than the Extreme II array, and the 600 series array. Capacity gives the Chronos Deluxe array a slight edge.
Some of the arrays on our chart, including the SuperSSpeed array that's our test subject, display a faux performance drop at 4K to 32K transfer sizes. We call this a faux performance drop because after the arrays have settled in, this performance anomaly disappears. Looking at 2K - 8K transfer performance, we see that our little SuperSSpeed array is able to outperform both the EVO array, and the 600 series array.
