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 shows the XP941 256GB could use some optimizations to balance performance, but overall, the performance is high across the board.

 

The sequential read speed came out at just over 1064 MB/s. That's nearly twice what you can expect from a good SATA III SSD. The sequential write performance is nearly 860 MB/s. Again, well over what's possible with SATA III.
