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 556/501 MB/s. Keep in mind this is our OS volume 75% full. Write performance displays a lot of variability.
Sequential write performance with the drive loaded up with data displays a saw tooth pattern; not what we want to see.
Sequential read performance looks quite good.
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. The BX200 performs better than OCZ's TRION 100, but below that of the rest of the drives in our test pool.
(Anvil) Read IOPS through Queue Depth Scale
For the most part, the 480GB BX200 outperforms ADATA's SP550. The 960GB BX200 battles it out with the SP550 for the lowest performance on our chart.
(Anvil) Write IOPS through Queue Scale
Both BX200's outperform the TRION 100 but are easily outperformed by the SP550 and SMI reference design. It is important to keep in mind that this test fits within the drive's caching layer; sustained performance is actually much lower.
