ATTO is a disk benchmark which allows testing of drives with a range of file transfer sizes from 4K up to 2048K. We ran tests with a 1GB span and a default queue depth of 4, which would simulate a fairly intense work environment. The data read and written from ATTO is able to be compressed, which is something Sandforce controllers thrive on, and asynchronous NAND doesn't have much trouble keeping up with synchronous in compressible transfers. With our newcomer JMicron controller we expect the results to be interesting.
The results seem to show that ATTO highly favors the SandForce controllers. The Kingston V200 seems to be an outlier among a sea of SandForce based drives, not even being comparable to the other budget oriented drives such as the Patriot Pyro and OCZ Agility. The comparison tables should be noted that even though the V200 could not keep up with our other SandForce based SSDs the results when compared to hard disks are still quite good.
