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 performance in ATTO is quite good with Daytona 240GB nearly topping 560MB/s read and 535MB/s write throughput. The early benchmarks are not going to show the true behavior of this drive, though.
