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 an impressive 2,982/2,403 MB/s. Keep in mind this is our OS volume, and it is filled to 75% of its total capacity. The highest sequential read performance is achieved at 2MB transfers. The highest sequential write performance is achieved at 1MB transfers. The way Phison controlled SSDs handle compressible data is much different than incompressible data, which is why the Hellfire achieves such massive transfer rates in this test.
At 64KB transfers, the Hellfire takes a massive lead over the competing drive's in our test pool. The Hellfire is only capable of this kind of performance when the data transfer is fully compressible.
The Hellfire delivers the goods when reading sequential data. Of the drives in our test pool, only Samsung's SM961 can outperform the Hellfire from start to finish.
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.
Anvil's scoring gives a good indication of a drive's overall performance. In terms of overall scoring, Patriot's Hellfire lands in the middle of our test pool. The Hellfire manages to outscore Samsung's 950 Pro and Intel's 400GB 750 Series NVMe SSD.
(Anvil) Read IOPS through Queue Depth Scale
The Hellfire hangs in there with the Intel 750's up to QD8. The Hellfire manages to overtake OCZ's RD400 at QD64, however, overall, the Hellfire is outperformed by the competition.
(Anvil) Write IOPS through Queue Scale
Patriot's Hellfire is a write centric SSD as evidenced by this chart. Overall, the Hellfire outperforms the 950 Pro, RD400, and 400GB Intel 750. We would like to see better QD1-2 performance, but the Hellfire doesn't kick into high gear until we hit QD4. The Intel 750 1.2TB delivers the best low queue depth performance, and the SM961 the best high queue depth performance.
