ATTO Disk Benchmark, Queue Depth 4
ATTO has a user selectable queue depth, it defaults to 4. I ran it at both 4 and the maximum of 10.
Wow. Just wow. 1,556MB/s read and 1,265MB/s write is insane. It is also comfortably over the specified speeds, something you don't see every day. I am blown away by this performance! For giggles, let's try a queue depth of 10...
ATTO Disk Benchmark, Queue Depth 10
I am blown away. Over a gigabyte per second by the 32kb transfer size mark? 1,567MB/s read? 1,473MB/s write? That didn't just fulfill the promised specifications, it blew them away! This may not be a cheap drive, but wow is it fast when you give it a queue!
Low CPU Power PCMark05
Using the low end system I was having serious issues with my XP Startup, General HDD, and Virus scan scores in PCMark05. Even with SSDs like the Vertex 3 240GB MaxIOPS that usually dominate PCMark05 my results were not that great, standard SSDs and SATA controllers seem to require too much CPU power to function well on a system with limited CPU power. Worse the CPU power is being used by other processes during some of the tests!
Enter the RevoDrive 3 X2 240GB!
Previous best results:
That was good for 4th place, but lacked the storage scores for a top3 spot. With the RevoDrive 3 X2, I got the following result:
Significantly higher in all storage scores, enough more performance to grab me first place!
Low CPU power was definitely not a holdup for the RevoDrive3 X2.
