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 563/541 MB/s. Keep in mind this is our OS volume 75% full. Sequential performance is much better than Zotac's specifications.
The HyperX Savage edges the Zotac Premium for the best sequential performance.
The Zotac Premium outperforms all the drives in our test pool at transfer sizes of 4KB - 128KB. This is our first indication that the Zotac Premium may have better read performance than the HyperX Savage. If so, this would seem to indicate that the Zotac Premium may be benefiting from the minor firmware revision we noticed.
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 Zotac Premium is delivering superior read performance in comparison to the HyperX Savage. What we were hoping to see is happening, over 10K 4K QD1 read performance. The Samsung's still deliver better performance, but the gap is closing.
(Anvil) Read IOPS through Queue Depth Scale
We can clearly see that the Zotac Premium has far superior read performance to the HyperX Savage. At QD1-2, the Zotac Premium is performing equivalently to the Samsung drives. This may be a minor firmware revision, but it's making a notable difference in read performance.
(Anvil) Write IOPS through Queue Scale
Write performance of the Zotac Premium is a little lower than the HyperX Savage. Based on this result, we believe that firmware revision on the Zotac Premium is trading a little write performance for far better read performance.
