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 test as well as the real-world file transfer benchmark.

ATTO Baseline Performance

Version and / or Patch Used: 2.34

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

Crucial's specification sheet claimed 500MB/s read and 250MB/s write. We achieved nearly 540MB/s read and 275MB/s write performance in ATTO. It's always nice to get more performance than expected.
