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

Our early testing shows the M550 256GB was able to deliver just over 560 MB/s sequential read and 510 MB/s sequential write speeds. The performance is a bit higher than what the Crucial spec sheet calls for, and we aren't complaining.
