ATTO is one of the oldest benchmarks around, but it’s still a useful tool to gauge a drive’s adeptness at managing compressible data. It’s also useful for seeing how a drive performs across a variety of different transfer block size.
For test involving the smallest data blocks of 4K, the Aorus NVMe Gen4 SSD was the slowest.
However, once block size increased to 32K and higher, it started turning in winning performance.
It managed clear leads for 512K and 8MB data blocks, pointing to the advantage of its PCIe 4.0 bus standard.
