The 4K read is a bit shy. Did you have anything running during the Atto test ?

I agree on the HDD part. But sticks are not the solution. They are far too slow. I use SSDs - more than half a dozen. Even as external drives to run my virtual machines. And that is fast. See my 8.1 boot time from an external.

I had a web browser (Seamonkey) open plus all the normal stuff that runs all the time. Should I do a Clean Boot then run the ATTO test?

@Ztruker
ATTO benchmark is not very reliable it can generate absurd results based on "best scenario". Personally I wish ATTO results that I have got would be true..
Anyway, get either Crystal Disk Mark, or ASSSD Benchmark (requires .NET 3.5 though) godd are also PC Mark 7, IOmeter, HD Tune PRO.
Notes:
ASSSD Benchmark is geared toward servers so don't worry about final score.

usefulness:
1000kb sequential r/w- important for video editing movies, software installation
4k random r/w- multitasking, word, excel

remember to run benchmarks on "clean" system, just after reboot (so you need to reboot of each test)

Samsung Evo 840 250GB v WD 250 Sata1.5 on sata 3 ports

Because of a few problems I upgraded W7 to W8 then W8.1 on an old WD250 250 gb drive.
Once I had it all working to my satisfaction i.e boot to desktop,classic shell menus, gadgets, elevated prompts to start up my W7 gadgets and other progs on startup ,W7 games etc installed. I was in a position to transfer to a 250GB ssd drive. Having read reviews, I settled on a Samsung evo 840 250GB for £120.
I decided to make a couple of tests on my way through this to see the effect.
EVO 840 installed and WD digital 250 sata transferred. SSD bios upgraded to latest. Samsung magician run drive optimised and rapid disk enabled . The results using CrystalDiskMark before and after are:

CrystalMark.png

Quite a difference, but real mode counts more than a couple of bencmarks so here is a couple of real figures:

Windows 8.1 load from blue W8 icon to first Desktop WD sata 54 secs: Evo 840 8 secs
Skyrim (game ) WD sata sata 62secs Evo 840 26 secs, and saves and cell changes appear to be instant.

Best upgrade ever. I have ckecked my profile but specs for this machine is :-
Gigabyte ga-890gpa-ud3h (6 sata 3 ports), amd 1090T (6core) at 3.4 ghz
Corsair dominator 8 GB at 1600
Nvidia gtx460, 2TB wd sata 250GB (buk data backups etc. samsung evo 840 for op system and games

Really posted to show users the advantage of swapping to an ssd even use a 120gb drive for your op and
and putting large files on a standard sata drive to save costs.

That's impressive. Definitely the best bang for the buck is a SSD.

Mac Pro 3.1 - OS X 10.8.5
Samsung 840 EVO 500GB in SATA-2 SDD sled running Windows 8 Pro x64 under OS X BootCamp 5.3.3

RAPID Mode = ON

Samsung 1 - 840 EVO 500GB SATA-II RAPID (OSX BootCamp 5).JPG

Samsung 2 - 840 EVO 500GB SATA-II RAPID (OSX BootCamp 5).JPG

CrystalDiskMark x64 - 840 EVO 500GB SATA-II RAPID (OSX BootCamp 5).JPG

ATTO - 840 EVO 500GB SATA-II RAPID (OSX BootCamp 5).JPG

Due to boot problems on a PCIe expansioncard I had to insert this SSD into a SATA-2 sled.
Upgraded my OS X as wel with a RAID0 with 2x Samsung 840 EV0 500GB on the PCIe Velocity Solo X2 (SATA-3).
BEST upgrade I ever made....

Cheers

@Maverick
ATTO results are misleading (results are much higher than should be). In your case 4x higher than crystal disk mark and Samsung Magician.
It is difficult to say what to expect from Windows running from bootcamp, but for Samsung Evo your SSD is underperforming.

If I would believe these ATTO data:
ATTO Disk Benchmark 01-10-2014.png

..my SATA 6GB/s would be faster than PCIe. Not possible.
I would stick with CrystalDiskMark

Thanks Michal,

I forgot to mention that the EVO for bootcamping Windows 8 is in a SATA-II sled of the MacPro. Due to boot problems in combination with a PCIe SATA-III card, which cannot hold the OSX and BC drive all together.

Time to move this topic on?

A popular thread over at Windows 7 Forums, I thought I'd bring it over here to see what we're getting with the Windows 8 OS.

Here's mine, using the default settings:


The benchmark we tried to use is ATTO 2.47, available from...
or ...
Gee, we tried Dwarf. Your bench won't run on win81-64 with i7-3770k on Intel wares with 32gb, but somewhere around 5 times your punch +. Win81 install time circa 4 minutes, boot 0.7 secs. Every bench is dif, so I guess you should update this topic with PCMARK or anything up to the task.
Ciao.:confused:

Pretty fast - what is that.

as is says in my system specs: 2xOCZ Vertex 3 - 120GB SSD's SataIII Raid-0

they are pretty fast especially in raid-0 should be upgrading them soon too (not faster just bigger)

I personally am not a fan of Raid setups. They just complicate your life. And although they produce nice measurements, in real life there is little difference because the access time is the same.

Raid is not a backup, a mirror gives you redundancy, not a backup. For example, get a virus, and both drives are infected. Accidentally delete all of your pictures, all pictures are deleted from your "backup" as well. Raid provides redundancy in case a drive falls, but it should never be confused with a backup.
