In ATTO, the performance was enough to get our attention, but not all that impressive compared to the highest performing drives on the market. Here, see a comparison against every tier one consumer SSD on the market, and the Kingfast C-Drive F8 actually does pretty well with the budget models.

The sequential write performance is down to many of the well-known products, but the highest selling drive in the world right now, the Samsung 840 EVO, is actually slower when you get past Turbo Write speeds.

After running a consumer appropriate amount of random writes to the drive, 4x runs in HD Tune Pro's random write test in full span, the sequential write performance never drops past 260 MB/s, and has an average sequential write speed of 291 MB/s.
