Install Times (Windows / Office 2010)



Benchmark Results


Installing Windows, chances are that all of us have to do it at one point or another and while it is not essential to have fantastic performance in this area, it is a good test for writing a large amount of data to the drive in a short space of time. This is especially useful due to the fact the variation in file sizes being written is huge. The time taken is recorded from the moment we begin the install, after partitioning and formatting to when the prompt appears where we choose our username.

Installing Windows 7 on the Performance Pro is a simple process, even on the latest SATA 6GB/s motherboards. For our Intel based motherboard we simply ran the installer, selected the drive (formatting and partitioning to our needs) and then less than five minutes later our operating system was ready to use.



Benchmark Results


The Windows install times were quite closely packed together but in an application installation the drives spread out a little with the Performance Pro hitting a similar level to the OCZ/Sandforce combination. The Intel/Marvell drive does just edge ahead too, a little behind the new Indilinx based model.
