In order to fully utilize SATA III, you need a system with native SATA III support. P67 and Z68 systems are preferred, but AMD has made advances in their newer SATA III systems as well. Older X58 systems with Marvell based SATA III 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 achieved a high read score of 538MB/s, just above OCZ's listed 535MB/s. The write tests, though, only showed a maximum speed of 363MB/s and this is shy of OCZ's 400MB/s claimed write speed. OCZ generally quotes performance with a queue depth of 10 and we run this test with a queue depth of 4, the default setting.
