Mushkin Chronos DX 480GB SSD Review - Benchmarks - Test System Setup and ATTO Baseline Performance

Mushkin has quietly held a price lead throughout 2012 on the 480 / 512GB capacity size. The Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 480GB isn't always the absolute lowest priced SSD in this size, but it's the lowest priced SSD with synchronous / toggle mode flash.

Lenovo W530 - Mobile Workstation

 

 

We use two systems for SSD testing. The desktop runs a majority of the tests and the Lenovo W530 runs the notebook power tests as well as the real-world file transfer benchmark.

 

 

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 548MB/s read performance and 525MB/s write performance in our initial best case test at QD4. This is a good start for the Chronos DX 480GB. Let's see how it does in the more advanced tests.
