ATTO Disk Benchmark
Atto is a comprehensive benchmark that looks at read and write speed at a wide range of chunk sizes. In read speed we see that the Neutron GTX only comes out on top from 1 MB, with exceptionally weak results at 1 KB. In write speed it proves much better, showing ridiculous 498 MB/s at 8 MB and even 474 MB/s at the 64 KB size – magnificently ahead of the competition, more than what you’d expect from the larger drive size.
SiSoft Sandra Physical Disks Benchmark
SiSoft Sandra is a benchmarking and utility program that I’ve been using for many years, and we’re going to be looking at the Drive Score and Access Time metrics. We see that the Neutron GTX comes barely second to the M5 Pro, although its access time is significantly larger – 14 vs 9. Still, the Neutron GTX is leagues ahead of the M3 Pro and M4.
