  9. Transfer Tests
  10. Conclusion


ATTO cannot run sequential file benchmarks with a file size smaller than the size of the aligned drive. Since this is a 4K drive by default, tests were done with 4KB onwards. The drive’s performance is pretty much maxed from 64KB file size transfer, in both reading and writing.


The drive is on par with some other drives from 64KB file size onwards, just like AS SSD benchmark.


Write file transfer from 64KB is bit quicker than the portable version of 1TB Seagate Backup plus and does well even against another portable drive with Toshiba’s MQ01ABD050 drive- ADATA HV610.
