In order to fully utilize SATA III you need a system with native SATA III support. P67, Z68, Z77 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 ports 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.

Transcend's spec sheet rated the SSD720 at 560MB/s read speed and we almost achieved the same result. With newer Intel 11.6 Series drivers I have no doubt that 560MB/s would be possible. In our testing with older but time tested, reliable drivers the SSD720 produced a maximum write speed of over 534MB/s.
