Version and / or Patch Used: 2.47
ATTO is a timeless benchmark used to provide manufacturers with data used for marketing storage products.
Sequential read/write transfers max out at 562/459 MB/s. Keep in mind, this is our OS volume 75% full.
Overall, the Reactor is delivering the best performance of the drives in our test pool. The Trion delivers higher numbers from 4K and above, but the Reactor is delivering twice the performance of the Trion at transfers up to 2K.
The Reactor is outperformed by both 8-channel S10 controlled drives on our chart; the Ignite and Trion. The rest of the drives in our test pool are all 4-channel controlled and of those, the Reactor and the TeraNova are delivering the best performance.
Anvil Storage Utilities
Version and / or Patch Used: 1.1.0
Anvil's Storage Utilities is a storage benchmark designed to measure the storage performance of SSD's. The Standard Storage Benchmark performs a series of tests; you can run a full test or just the read or write test, or you can run a single test, i.e. 4k QD16.
Anvil's scoring gives a good indication of a drive's overall performance. The Trion is the only drive in our test pool with TLC flash, and it shows. The rest of the drives in our test pool put up similar performance with the Ignite delivering the best performance.
(Anvil) Read IOPS through Queue Depth Scale
The Reactor and the BX100 are equipped almost identically and their performance is pretty much the same. The rest of the drives in our test pool are delivering better performance.
(Anvil) Write IOPS through Queue Scale
Again, I will point out the Trion with its TLC flash. This is the problem with TLC flash, and why the Reactor is such a great bargain because it's priced in the same range as the TRION, however, the Reactor is equipped with quality MLC flash that delivers superior performance and endurance.
