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.

The Patriot Supersonic Magnum loses the substantial lead it had held in AS-SSD when benchmarked in ATTO where the compressible sequential data lets the Inferno catch up to or even pass the Magnum. Still 297MB/s is nothing to be scoffed at especially for a drive with a official rating of only 250MB/s. When it comes to write speeds the Magnum is not quite able to make its advertised speed and is quite handily beaten by our 60GB Inferno SSD.

$300 usd for a thumb drive ? they have got to be kidding . maybe if it was a terabyte or so i would look at it . my guess is that hard drives and thumb drives will give way to solid state motherboard cards with greater performance than thunderbolt and with capacities in the petaflop region ten years from today .

I don't know what you have to be confused about. They charge $1.17 Per GB, pretty much the same as all other USB3.0 flash drives on the market.
