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.
1TB MyDigitalSSD BOOST Benchmark Results (5Gb/s)
At 5Gb/s, the BOOST’s 458MB/s reads and 455MB/s writes are impressive for a USB device, but still below any internal drive. However, connecting the drive to a SuperSpeed+ port increases performance to 687MB/s reads and 664MB/s writes, faster than any internal SATA drive that Benchmark Reviews has ever tested. In fact, it would be impossible for an internal SATA drive to achieve these speeds due to the limitations of the SATA 6G interface.

On this benchmark, the BOOST returns the best performance we’ve ever seen from a non-PCIE drive:
