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. 

We put very little faith in ATTO as it is the storage orientated test equivalent of an old favorite in-game benchmark. What we mean is storage manufacturers have been gaming these results for generations now. With that said we are seeing a dramatic improvement in performance in one generation here. Since the SM2258 is nothing more than a slightly cheaper version of the SM2256 that can handle 3D NAND theses results do speak to the performance potential of this new – and very exciting – MLC CuA NAND. Now if Crucial had only paired it with an actually potent controller.
