ATTO

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 3.05

 

ATTO is a timeless benchmark used to provide manufacturers with data used for marketing storage products. When evaluating ATTO performance we focus on the drive's performance curve.

We are not able match factory sequential read/write performance when the drive is 75% full. Keep in mind that factory sequential speeds are measured at QD32, we are running this test at QD4.

 

Sequential Write

The performance curve looks good when writing sequential data in burst mode; especially small-file performance where the 760p is beating all the contenders in our test pool.

 

Sequential Read

Sequential read performance ramps up fast, which is what we want to see. Even though the 760p flattens off a bit at 8KB-64KB transfers, it still dominates the contenders in our test pool.

 

 

 

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. When evaluating performance with Anvils, we focus on total score. When evaluating NVMe SSDs we are typically looking for a minimum total score of over 10K. We place a greater importance on read performance than write performance.

Take note of the 4K read performance. The 760p delivers the best we've seen from any flash-based SSD we have tested to date.

 

Scoring

In terms of total score, the 760p trades blows with Plextor's M9Pe for the top spot. The Plextor drive just edges out the 760p by delivering a slightly better write score. Intel says the 760p delivers double the performance of their 600p and we are seeing close to that on our chart. Not only does the 760p crush the 600p, it also crushes its 7 Series sibling - the Intel 750.

 

(Anvil) Read IOPS through Queue Depth Scale

Random performance is much more important than sequential performance for a system disk. Low queue depth random performance is more important than high queue depth performance. With those two previous statements in mind, we give the win to the 760p because it delivers best-in-class low QD random read performance.

 

(Anvil) Write IOPS through Queue Scale

Awesome performance curve, the 760p easily wins this test and once again dominates the previous Intel offerings.
