Benchmarks - ATTO, PCMark 8 Storage

Pure sequential throughput is not the 845DC PRO's primary forte, but it's plenty fast enough in a straight line.

Write performance, too, is right up there with the best we have seen from SATA 6Gbps drives.

PCMark 8 has a built-in storage benchmark that evaluates performance over a number of popular applications such as Adobe Creative Suite, Microsoft Office and modern games. There's not a lot in it as far as far as overall performance is concerned.

But the benchmark also spits out another result, illustrating the average bandwidth achieved by each drive when running all the tests. The 845DC PRO's clearly superior here.
