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

In ATTO, we found the RamCity numbers to be very close to what we achieved with the XP941 128GB in a M.2 PCIe adapter on our ASUS Maximus VI Extreme motherboard.

 

In reads, we hit 1071 MB/s and 477 MB/s in writes. The writes are obviously a bit lower than what we can hit with SATA based drives, but the reads are nearly double what SATA III can achieve.
