The next software we used was the ATTO Disk Benchmark. The tool measures storage systems performance with various transfer sizes and test lengths for reads and writes. The benchmark performs file transfers ranging from 0.5 KB to 8192 KB.
The drive gave the expected performance with an average more than 500MB/s for write and more than 520MB/s for read , with files larger than 256 KB, in Queue Depth 4:
Generally, ATTO is the preferred standard benchmarking software as while it runs spot data is has several advantages over other HDD benchmarks including the fact that it shows the specific speed of each file size transfer and shows a true average, this benchmarking product also doesn't seem to favor SRAM over DRAM caches.
Below you see a comparison of the performances of some SSD's compared to the Kingston HyperX 120GB SSD.
As you see below, the Kingston HyperX 120GB SSD fast when reading and writing 4K files:
The drive performed even better with larger files, especially in the writing part:
The next benchmark is the CrystalDiskMark. The software provides throughput data based on sequential reads and writes, and random (512K/4K/4KQD32) reads and writes. The Kingston HyperX 120GB provided consistent performance with great scores:
The 0Fill test will typically return data results, close to those usually quoted by the specifications of an SSD:
