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 and small-file performance.
We are able match or exceed factory ATTO sequential read/write performance specs with both capacities even when we are testing as OS volumes 75% full.
ADATA's SX8200 delivers the best sequential small-file performance for any flash-based SSD we've tested to date.
The SX8200 delivers to us the best performance curve for a flash-based SSD we've tested to date. This is what we want, and this is what the SX8200 is serving up. This is where we begin to see that ADATA's recipe is a bit better than Intel's 760P which uses the same flash, and controller. ADATA employs double the flash packages and newer firmware, both of which contribute to superior performance albeit at the expense of a single sided design. Lab record.
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 SX8200 does an admirable job. Now when we dig a bit deeper and look at the all-important read score, the 480GB SX8200 delivers a new lab record for TLC SSDs. This is what we want from an SSD, and testament to why the SX8200 is currently our favorite flash-based SSD.
(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. Random read performance is more important than random write. With those previous statements in mind, the results of this test are quite impressive. The 480GB model delivers the best QD1-4 random read performance for a flash-based SSD we've ever recorded. Lab record.
(Anvil) Write IOPS through Queue Scale
Random write performance at QD1-2 is second only to the write-centric SanDisk Extreme Pro. QD1-2 are by far where random performance matters most and this is where the SX8200 delivers the goods.
