Corsair Neutron XTi 480GB SSD Review
ATTO Disk Benchmark
The ATTO disk benchmark tests the drives read and write speeds using gradually larger size files. For these tests, the ATTO program was set to run from its smallest to largest value (.5KB to 8192KB) and the total length was set to 256MB. The test program then spits out an extrapolated performance figure in megabytes per second.
For a drive that rests on the more budget-oriented end of the spectrum, these performance results are damn impressive. Clearly, the combination of excellent NAND with a massive amount of onboard RAM does make a noticeable performance impact. Of course, ATTO is a synthetic benchmark that we consider to be a softball test suite, so while this is nice to see it still is not telling us all that much. All these results are doing is backing up Corsair’s claims that the RAM does make a difference. Let’s see if this tweak really does make the PHISON S10 controller shine in harder synthetic tests.
