TweakTown Rating: 66%Manufacturer: BIOSTAR




Version and / or Patch Used: 2.47


ATTO is a timeless benchmark used to provide manufacturers with data used for marketing storage products. With ATTO, we are looking at maximum sequential performance with compressible data as well as the performance curve.




Compressible sequential read/write transfers max out at 564/524 MB/s. Keep in mind this is our OS volume, and it is filled to 75% of its total capacity.


Sequential Write





We would like to see a smoother performance curve. Overall the G330 delivers below average sequential write performance.


Sequential Read





Sequential read performance at transfers of 8KB and larger are excellent. Below 8KB, the G330 is delivering disappointing results.




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. With Anvil's, we are focused on the total score.









Anvil's scoring typically provides us with a good indication of a drive's overall synthetic performance. Overall the score isn't bad, considering what the G330 is. The G330 suffers most from extremely poor random read performance.


(Anvil) Read IOPS through Queue Depth Scale





With the drive filled to 75% of its total capacity, we can only muster 49K random read IOPS from the G330 256GB.




The G330 delivers respectable performance at QD1, but at higher queue depths it falls into last place.


(Anvil) Write IOPS through Queue Scale





With the drive filled to 75% of its total capacity, we are getting a max of 90K IOPS.




The G330 does reasonably well when writing random data. The ADATA SU800 is similarly configured (same controller and same flash) which is why it has a similar performance curve.
