Lenovo T440 - Notebook Power Testing with DEVSLP and Windows 8.1 Pro

 

 

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

In ATTO at a queue depth of 4, we observed sequential performance at 490 MB/s read and 433 MB/s write. We know from experience that sequential performance doesn't always equate to a SSDs real-world performance.

 

The ARC 100 is slower than both the Vertex 460 and Vector 150 in this metric, but later on we'll see real-world performance.
