Today we are using our standard HDD test system to test the new Silicon Power eSATA/USB Portable SSD.
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. We use it to do the same and show the maximum performance a drive is capable of.
Here we see the claims from Silicon Power are accurate; the drive is capable of achieving nearly 90 MB/s read and over 50 MB/s write.
