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

ATTO is used by many disk manufacturers to determine the read and write speeds that will be presented to customers.

See, I told you this was an interesting drive. Toshiba's specs are very conservative compared to the performance we pulled out of THNSNF.

Our system pulled just over 550MB/s read and 511MB/s write speeds. With performance like this coming from your notebook right out of the box, the aftermarket might have a problem convincing you to upgrade. This is a big change to what we experienced just a few years ago because the performance of this drive is comparable to the performance offered by the best retail level drives on the market today.
