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.

We easily topped Seagate's maximum stated performance numbers. In our ATTO test we posted a 555MB/s read speed and 471MB/s write speed. Not bad for a 500 / 400 rating, we'll take it.
