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.
