Tune Test – Sequential reading test.

ATTO disk benchmark

ATTO has become a standard tool for measuring
the data throughput of HDDs and SSDs. It measures the reading and writing
performance, using different file sizes and block sizes.

This is the application that all
manufacturers use to benchmark their drives, and as we can see the Netac N580N
is able to reach read speeds of 560MB/Sec and write speeds close to 520MB/Sec.

CrystalDiskMark 3.0

CrystalDiskMark is quite a handy
benchmarking application, as it focuses on the file sizes that can cause problems
for a system drive.

The overall result is again very impressive
for the Netac N580N m.2 SSD.

AS SSD Benchmark

AS SSD benchmark is a benchmarking tool
specifically designed to test SSDs. The application tests sequential reading
and writing performance, 4K random reading and writing performance.

AS SSD benchmark also tests 4K threaded
performance. This is very exciting, as this test is the first available test
that I am aware of, that simulates how a PC operating system actually works. A
modern PC and OS, such as Windows Vista/7 does not just run a single thread at
a time, it runs many threads. The AS SSD benchmark "4K 64Thrd" tests
run 64 threads simultaneously throughout the test. If this result is good, then
you can be pretty sure the drive will perform extremely well as a system drive.

After the tests complete, AS SSD benchmark
derives a total score for the drive being tested. This is based on all aspects
of the test results, and gives an indication of how the drive is performing

Now let’s look at the results for the Netac
N580N 240GB m.2 SSD in the form of a screenshot. All our other comparison
drives’ results are presented in the form of a graph.

Netac N580 m.2 SSD review

This is an excellent result for the Netac
N580N SSD. Notice that for some reason AS SSD reports 519.32MB/Sec on the
4K-64Thrd, this number looks a little high for an SATA SSD.

You can compare this drive with some
previous that I have tested, but keep in mind that the other results are based
on an entirely different system. You can find them here.

Let’s head to the next page and run some
tests using PCMark 8…..
