ATTO

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 2.47

 

ATTO is a timeless benchmark used to provide manufacturers with data used for marketing storage products.

Compressible sequential read/write transfers max out at 545/459 MB/s. Keep in mind this is our OS volume, and it is filled to 75% of its total capacity. Maximum sequential read performance is achieved at a 2MB transfer size, maximum sequential write performance at 8MB transfers.

 

Sequential Write

The choppy write performance with data on our OS disk is typical of many of today's TLC-based SSDs. The SSD Plus displays a lot of variability, the Z410 displays a more conventional performance curve. The BP5e and TRION 150 exhibit far better sequential write performance than the rest of the drives in our test pool. The SP550 and BX200 are both SM2256 powered and both have DRAM caching.

 

Sequential Read

The BP5e and TRION 100 display the best sequential read performance of the drives in our test pool.

 

 

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 SSDs. 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.

Scoring

Anvil's scoring gives a good indication of a drive's overall performance. We have six SM2256 powered SSDs in our test pool and all six are completely eviscerated by the BP5e and TRION 150. It's not hard to see why no SM2256 powered SSD has ever received a TweakTown recommendation. The Z410 240GB earns the dubious honor of the lowest Anvil's score for a SATA III SSD to date. It's even lower than OWC's 2TB Mercury Electra.

 

(Anvil) Read IOPS through Queue Depth Scale

There is a well-defined pecking order to this test. S10 powered SSDs on top, then SM2256 SSDs with DRAM and then DRAM-less SM2256 SSDs.

 

(Anvil) Write IOPS through Queue Scale

The well-defined pecking order stays the same but, with more definition to it due to the 240GB SSD Plus and Z410's abysmal write performance.
