Crucial MX500 2TB SSD ATTO Disk Benchmark Results
ATTO Disk Benchmark is a popular disk benchmark tool used to test hard drives, SSD drives, HBAs, RAID Adapters and Storage Controllers. It measures the storage systems performance with various transfer sizes and test lengths for reads and writes. Most of the time it returns the highest possible read/write speed compared to most benchmarking tools for storage. Below is the ATTO benchmark result I got with the Crucial MX500 SSD 2TB capacity:
Crucial MX500 2TB SSD AS SSD Benchmark Results
The AS SSD benchmark determines the performance of Solid State Drives (SSD). The tool contains six synthetic and three copy tests. The synthetic tests determine the sequential and random read and write performance of the SSD. These tests are carried out without using the operating system’s cache. In Sequential test the program measures how long it takes to read a 1 GB file to write respectively. 4K test the read and write performance is determined at random 4K blocks. These tests should represent the Native Command Queuing (NCQ). The additional compression test can measure the power of the SSD in response to compressibility of the data. This is especially for the controllers that use to increase the performance and life of the cell compression. Here are the results I got for the MX500 2TB SSD:
The results above shows that the 2TB capacity is just on par with the 1TB and 500GB in terms of sequential read speed. But it’s still just a tiny bit slower, unnoticeable in real world use.
