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 to match factory sequential read 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 XPG Gammix S10 easily outperforms Intel's 600p. We note especially good performance with transfers of 4KB-8KB.

Sequential Read

Sequential read performance ramps up slowly. The XPG Gammix S10 trades blows with the SX8000 for last place. Even the worst NVMe SSD of all-time (600p) gets the better of the XPG Gammix S10 in this test.

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 10K. We place a greater importance on read performance than write performance.

We don't get our 10K, but still a decent total score for the price. Definitely a huge upgrade from SATA.

Scoring

In terms of total score, the XPG Gammix S10 soundly defeats the 600p. The XPG Gammix S10 comes close to matching the much more expensive SX8000. We would like to see better random read performance from the XPG Gammix S10.

(Anvil) Read IOPS through Queue Depth Scale

Again, we would like to see better random read performance from the XPG Gammix S10.

At low queue depths, where performance matters most, the XPG Gammix S10 performs very well. It outperforms most of the contenders in our test pool at QD1-4.
