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 managed to put ADATA's 505 MB/s write speed to shame. In our test we achieved 522 MB/s sequential write performance. Our maximum sequential write performance measured 553 MB/s, not bad for a 4-channel mSATA drive.
