Today we're starting with the Cyberpower Zeus EVO Lightning 3000 SE that we recently reviewed. We're leaving the system intact aside from the motherboard; we replaced the GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 with the ASRock Fatal1ty 990FX Killer, and the secondary storage with the SanDisk A110 256GB.

The system uses the AMD FX-9590 unlocked processor, which is AMD's fastest consumer CPU to date. Prices on these are now under $280, and they are very fast.

ATTO Baseline Performance

Version and / or Patch Used: 2.34

ATTO is a timeless benchmark used to provide manufactures with data for market storage products. It shows sequential read and write performance over a large span of block sizes.

Our initial tests with ATTO delivered results higher than what SanDisk claimed on the spec sheet. Our tests show sequential reads at nearly 775 MB/s, and sequential writes just over 631 MB/s.
