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.
512GB Samsung 960 PRO ATTO Benchmark Results
With a blistering 3.4GB peak read speed, the 960 PRO is the fastest storage device Benchmark Reviews has ever tested in this benchmark, besting even the 950 PRO RAID!
The 950 PRO RAID still wins the maximum write speed contest, though.
