You can read more about TweakTown's Storage Product Testing Workstation and the procedures followed to test products in this article.


In order to fully utilize SATA III you need a system with native SATA III support. P67, Z68 and X79 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.




Using ATTO we managed to achieve a read speed over just over 560MB/s and a write speed just over 530MB/s. These are a bit higher than most of the drives we tested in 2011. Changes to the firmware and an overall very good design allowed Patriot to squeeze every drop of performance from the Pyro SE.
