Samsung SSD 840 Pro (256GB) Reviewby Anand Lal Shimpi on September 24, 2012 7:00 AM EST
Performance vs. Transfer Size
ATTO is a useful tool for quickly measuring the impact of transfer size on performance. In order to focus on areas of noticeable difference I cropped out the larger transfer sizes. You can get the complete data set in Bench. Unlike some recent SSDs, the 840 Pro doesn't sacrifice small file performance at all. The graphs below show fairly strong performance regardless of transfer size. Note the particularly strong showing of the 840 Pro in small file reads, an area where many competing drives typically fall short.
