It is important to remember that the RunCore Pro V that we are testing today is on beta firmware. We have it from good authority that at least one firmware revision will hit before the product is launched. At this time we are confident that we are playing with final hardware. Since I am taking these two drives home, we will be able to retest when the final retail firmware is ready.


ATTO Baseline Performance


Version and / or Patch Used: 2.34


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




The ATTO benchmark shows that the RunCore Pro V is pretty much limited by the SATA II interface. What this is eventually going to lead to with enthusiasts is finding ways to overclock the SATA II bus to try and squeeze even more performance out of the drive.
