Read scoring is what matters most to us, but it doesn't matter what your focus may be when it comes to AS SSD results because the FireCuda 520 is destroying its Gen3 competition, including Intel's Optane 905P. With results like this, it is easy to see why Seagate decided to pull the trigger and launch an E16 based SSD.

Our focus with ATTO is read/write transfers at 128 KB, which is why we only chart 128 KB transfers. As our charts demonstrate, Gen4 SSDs have a huge advantage over Gen3 competitors when reading or writing sequential data. The drive's max read transfer rate comes at 256 KB transfers, where we find the FireCuda serving up 5.64 GB/s transfer speed. Max write transfer rate occurs at 64 MB transfers with a speed of 4.27 GB/s.
