Toshiba XG6 review: The first SSD with 96-layer 3D-NAND!

Is Toshiba now competitive with Samsung and WD?


Atto Disk Benchmark

In addition to AS SSD, we also run Atto Disk Benchmark. This test was originally intended for hard disk drives and in fact says little to nothing about the practical performance of SSDs. However, because of the specific way this benchmark works, Atto can show the best case sequential read- and write speeds. This is why a lot of manufacturers base their own stated maximum speeds on this test.

When reading the Toshiba XG6 1TB is even faster than was specified in the specifications, when writing we arrive at exactly the specified 2960 MB/s. Reading is therefore done at the same speed as other top models, while writing is also extremely fast.
