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 were just shy of 560MB/s when reading data off of the Samsung 840 Pro. Writing data occurred at 518MB/s. The performance was in line with Samsung's specification numbers.
