You can read more about TweakTown's Storage Product Testing Workstation and the procedures followed to test products in this article.
Our test group is mostly made up of Indilinx Barefoot drives, the Patriot Warp M28 being the only exception. The PhotoFast V5 is a special RAID 0 edition that costs 3x more than the others in the group so it isn't an exact fit, but it is always nice to get some variety.
The sample sent from Team Group had the 1819 firmware installed. This is what most drives shipping today has on them out of the box. A few companies are starting to release the latest 1916 firmware. I looked on Team's website to see if they had any other firmware versions available for download, but none were listed.
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.
The raw performance of the drive in ATTO shows a strong read speed of close to 260 MB/s, but the write speed is lower than what we have seen on some other Barefoot controlled drives, but this is normal with the 1819 firmware. The 1881 firmware did free up around 40MB/s of extra write speed.
Let's see how that affects the benchmark results.
