    ATTO Disk Benchmark

    Sisoft Sandra

    Results

    The results are pretty consistent throughout all the different benchmarks. The RAID 0 array is the clear winner in every aspect except CPU utilization. However, the Barracuda is still a very solid performer. It's the fastest single IDE drive I have had. The Sandra scores, although synthetic, do show that it performs better than your typical 7200 RPM ATA/100 drive, almost catching up to the ATA/66 RAID array. I can only imagine the possibilities of putting a few of those monsters in RAID 0. With the IDE interface not even getting maxed out, it's good to see drives trying to catch up. I am definitely impressed. I did not get a chance to test the reliability of the drive since it wasn't mine to smash and throw around. However, I would imagine most users won't be putting 1,000 Gs of shock on the drive. It's still good to know that your data is safe from normal wear and tear. Since reliability is key for more important business applications, this drive is a good candidate to be used.
