Patriot Wildfire 120GB SATA 3 SSD Review – ATTO, Crystal DiskMark and AS SSD

ATTO DISK BENCHMARK VER. 2.46

ATTO Disk Benchmark is perhaps one of the oldest benchmarks going and is definitely the main staple for manufacturer performance specifications.  For our testing, we use a set length of 256mb and test both the read and write performance of various transfer sizes ranging from 0.5 to 8192kb.  Manufacturers prefer this method of testing as it deals with raw data rather than random or mixed which, although more realistic, result with lower performance results.

CRYSTAL DISK BENCHMARK VER. 3.0 X64

Crystal Disk Benchmark is used to measure read and write performance through sampling of raw (0/1 Fill) or random data. Many new SSD owners who cant wait to test the performance of their SSD often grab this program and run a quick test, not realizing that they are testing with random data, not RAW or 0Fill data as tested by manufacturers.  The 0Fill result is on the left and random data result on the right.

The Wildfire is showing excellent results and ranking extremely close to other SF-2281 controlled 120GB SSD we have tested.

AS SSD BENCHMARK VER 1.64

AS SSD Disk Benchmark is perhaps the only benchmark program that was created for solid state drives….up until the Anvil Pro (beta) of course.

AS SSD Copy Benchmark

The AS SSD Copy Benchmark provides the length of time and maximum transfer speed reached while copying a typical ISO, programs or games.  Lets see how the Wildfire (left) compares to the Crucial M4 of similar capacity.
