Western Digital Black 6TB HDD 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.
Thanks to its new dual core controller, dual actuators, and incredibly dense platters this new Black is simply stunning for a 7,200RPM drive. So much so that if there was ever a reason still left to purchase a 1TB Velociraptor this model, just removed it. That is no mean feat by any stretch of the imagination.
