Desktop Test System
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.
The M5 Pro with the new Xtreme 1.02 firmware starts out strong, but we don't see much of a difference between 1.02 and the original 1.0 firmware in this test. Some tests aren't going to show a dramatic difference, but others will.
