Western Digital VelociRaptor 1TB 10K RPM Hard Disk Drive Review - Benchmarks - Test System Setup and ATTO Baseline Performance

Western Digital's Raptor was a big hit with enthusiasts until the dawn of the SSD. Can the new 1TB release resurrect this species or will solid state be an extinction level event for this iconic product?

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.

Western Digital claims a read/write speed of 200MB/s, but they are shorting themselves. In our testing we nearly achieved 230MB/s read and around 210MB/s write speeds.

 

It's always nice to see better performance than what's listed on the spec sheet.
