ATTO Disk Benchmark is a relatively easy-to-use benchmark tool, which happens to be the benchmark of choice for many manufacturers. ATTO uses compressible data rather than random data, which results in higher performance and thus, higher benchmark scores. In our testing, we have selected the transfer size to range from 0.5KB to 8192KB, and have set the total length of the test to be 256MB.
The first benchmark test shows us that the read speeds reach up to 161 MB/s, and write speeds reaching up to 47 MB/s. This is well exceeding the listed specifications and is a great start to our testing.
Crystal Disk Benchmark is visually straightforward, and is used for measuring the speeds at which your storage device reads and writes in both compressible (oFill/1Fill) and random, mostly incompressible, data. Random data is more consistent with everyday use of a computer, such as transferring videos, pictures and music. We run the benchmark twice, using oFill data first, and then proceeding to test with random data. Since results typically return with nearly identical scores, we only include the results for random data samples.
Again, and now with incompressible data, we see very good results from the DT2000, exceeding the listed specifications.
AS SSD Benchmark uses incompressible data in their testing of SSDs, essentially providing results that would be consistent with using the heaviest workload, thus lower speeds are expected.
Now with AS SSD, we see great results from the sequential read and write testing. While we scratched the 4K tests due to incredible time it takes to complete these tests on any USB device, we see the access times which again are quite reasonable for this fully encrypted device.
Anvil Storage Utilities is essentially an all-in-one tool for all of your SSD benchmarking needs. Anvil can be used for basic consumer testing, as well as endurance testing and threaded I/O read, write and mixed tests. It displays data regarding the SSD, and even about your system
Our all-in-one benchmark tool, Anvil’s Storage Utility, returned read and write results that are similar to what we have seen previously.
