ATTO

With ATTO running at QD10, we hit a max of 11.4GB/s sequential read and 6.4GB/s sequential write. Compared with our VROC array running as a system disk, sequential write shows significant improvement, while sequential read shows a slight decrease.

 

Anvil Storage Utilities

Running Anvil's produces an impressive total score of 22,345.11. This is slightly lower than we got with our VROC array running as a system disk.

 

CrystalDiskMark

With CrystalDiskMark, we hit 12GB/s sequential read at Q32T1 and 6GB/s sequential write with the same setting. Overall, significantly better results than with our VROC array running as a system disk.

 

AS SSD
