ATTO Disk Benchmark

The ATTO Disk Benchmark tests the drive’s read and write speeds using gradually larger file sizes. For these tests, ATTO was set to run from its smallest to largest value (.5KB to 8192KB), and the total length was set to 256MB. The test program then generates an extrapolated performance figure in megabytes per second.

Where the Accelerator relies on a SATA 2 SF-2182 controller, it comes as no surprise that the power curves are lower than those of a comparably priced OCZ Synapse 64GB drive. However, compared to the system running in HDD-only mode, the Accelerator’s results do speak for themselves and should correspond to a tangible boost in performance.
