ATTO Disk Benchmark
The ATTO Disk Benchmark program is free, and offers a comprehensive set of test variables to work with. In terms of disk performance, it measures interface transfer rates at various intervals for a user-specified length and then reports read and write speeds for these spot-tests. There are some minor improvements made to the 2.46 version of the program that allow for test lengths up to 2GB, but all of our benchmarks are conducted with 256MB total length. ATTO Disk Benchmark requires that an active partition be set on the drive being tested. Please consider the results displayed by this benchmark to be basic bandwidth speed performance indicators.
480GB C-380 SSD ATTO Benchmark Results
The 480GB model provided to Benchmark Reviews for testing produced 566 MBps maximum read speeds that plateau when the file size reaches about 64KB, and an exceptional write speed of 537 MBps peak write bandwidth that plateaus starting at about 128KB. Both of these figures handily exceed Centon’s promise of 520MB/s reads and 500MB/s writes on this benchmark; indeed, these are the highest scores Benchmark Reviews has ever recorded.
These results catapult the Centon 480GB SSD to the very top of our ATTO disk benchmark score chart, narrowly edging out the previous champion, the Samsung 850 EVO.
