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 test 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.

Just like the other M500 models we've tested, the 480GB drive does better than what Crucial's spec sheet says. In our baseline performance test, we nearly hit 540MB/s reads and 435MB/s writes.
