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.

ATTO Disk Benchmark: Queue Depth 4 (Default)

Our bandwidth speed tests begin with the MyDigitalSSD BP4 Slim 7-series solid state drive attached to the Intel P67-Express SATA 6Gb/s controller operating in AHCI mode. Using the ATTO Disk Benchmark tool, the test drive performs basic file transfers ranging from 0.5 KB to 8192 KB.

The 240GB model MDS7-BP4-240 solid state drive provided to Benchmark Reviews for testing produced 558 MBps maximum read speeds that plateau from 64-8192 KB file chunks, and 522 MBps peak write bandwidth that peaks at 512 KB. These results agree with the manufacturer's maximum performance specifications of 560/530 MBps for this 240 GB SSD.

Performance isn't the best, but more than fine considering the price. I'd buy one just because it isn't a ubiquitous Sandforce. Thanks for the review.

Comparison? I remember past evaulations that oncluded Samsung drives that Outperformed Intel and gave the Vertex a run for the money

Samsung doesn't offer us samples for review, or they would be included. Regardless, all of the most popular SSD controllers are represented in our tests. Which Samsung SSD were you expecting to see?
