ATTO Disk Benchmark
In the graph above is a graphical representation of the data from the ATTO Disk Benchmark Read test across all drives. To see the specific numbers, please refer to the screenshot above this graph. What we see from this graph is that the Mushkin Reactor does have a lower read speed across the board to the end. The new TeamGroup T-Force Vulcan SSD actually has a slightly higher consistent read speed from 64KB to the end over the SAMSUNG 860 EVO, which is impressive. The TeamGroup SSD got up to 526 MB/s in the read speed test.
In this graph, we are looking at the write speed in graph form. It is clear that the SAMSUNG 860 EVO does have a higher consistent write speed, but in reality, the results very close together. What’s not together is the Mushkin Reactor write speeds, it’s much slower around 400 MB/s writes. The new TeamGroup T-Force Vulcan SSD smashes the write speed of the Mushkin Reactor SSD and comes very close to the SAMSUNG 860 EVO, so this is impressive.
We are introducing a new test to our benchmark suite for SSDs, AJA System Test. This one is unique; it tests actual high-quality video and its ability to stream from the SSD. For our test we are using the 3840×2160 (4K) Ultra HD video setting with a 4GB file size and 10-bit YUV color. We found this test to be very unique in testing performance.
According to this benchmark, the TeamGroup T-Force Vulcan SSD is on top in read performance at 520 MB/s. There might be some caching here since this does exceed the maximum 510 MB/s read speed, though we did select the option to disable any caches, and we tested and re-tested this. The SAMSUNG 860 EVO and the MUSHKIN REACTOR both came in with 517 MB/s of read.
On the write speed, the SAMSUNG 860 EVO is slightly faster at 463 MB/s write, which tracks with other results we have done. The TeamGroup SSD follows it very closely at 450 MB/s. The Mushkin Reactor falls way behind both, so the write tests are in-line with other benchmarks.
