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 a timeless benchmark used to provide manufacturers with data used to market storage products.




In our initial test, we beat Crucial's sequential performance claims by a small margin. We achieved 552 MB/s sequential read and 511 MB/s sequential write performance.
