ATTO Disk Benchmark
ATTO Disk Benchmark is probably one of the gold standards when it comes to drive performance. The software itself is fairly old but it works, measuring transfer rates at different transfer sizes for a file being 256MB in size.
The G.Skill Falcon comes out on top against the competition when the drive is brand new. Once the drive is completely full, the performance slips and we’re back in par with your conventional the Seagate Barracuda.
Crystal Disk Mark
Crystal Disk Mark is another disk benchmark software commonly used, unlike ATTO Disk Benchmark, Crystal Disk Mark is our first look at sequential transfer rates as well as 4KB and 512KB Random transfer rates.
Crystal Disk Mark Sequential Read didn’t give a realistic number; it was in the thousands of megabytes per second. We can see that the 4KB random read and write performance has had a dramatic performance increase over the older JMicron SSD.
There’s nothing fancy to DiskBench, I commonly use it to see how long it takes to copy a file from one source to another. Seeing as this is a hard drive review, I’m going to use the “Create File” feature and determine the speed at which the hard drive is able to create a 200MB file consisting of 100 2MB blocks.
