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.
As expected, both capacities perform almost identically. Full performance is achieved at 8KB transfers.
The 800p delivers excellent small-file performance. Better than the 900P. However, sequential write performance is not the 800P's forte.
The 800P delivers excellent small-file sequential performance, but again, sequential performance is not where it shines brightest.
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.
In terms of total score, the 800P scores less than the contenders from Samsung. However, keep in mind that the 800P is only a 2-Lane SSD. Now if we look at what really matters, the read score, the 800P is laying waste to the flash-based contenders.
(Anvil) Read IOPS through Queue Depth Scale
Normally we show IOPS at QD32 but the 800P is able to hit max performance at QD8, where as NAND SSDs hit their max at QD64 and higher.
This graph perfectly illustrates why you need Optane. The 800P is cranking out 5x the random read performance of our flash-based contenders at QD1. Keep in mind that random read performance at QD1 is by far the most important metric in relation to overall system performance.
(Anvil) Write IOPS through Queue Scale
Random write IOPS at QD32.
Optane doesn't have much of an advantage over flash when the write workload is pure random on a reasonably fresh SSD. In the case of the 800P, having only 2 lanes puts it at a disadvantage with this testing.
