File Copy Tests



Benchmark Results




Benchmark Results


In the first of our true “real world” tests we have created four file copy scenarios which cover operations which users are likely to perform on a regular basis. In the first three we copy files of 17GB, 6.5GB and 1GB from location to location, recording the time taken to complete the task. In the final test we copy a folder containing 42 files of varying size totalling 1GB.

The 17GB file test gives us a good indication of which drives can sustain their write performance at higher levels for a significant period of time. For the mechanical drives, at least when empty, the Barracuda performs best. Moving to the SSDs we see Corsair and OCZ’s SandForce models comparing well against each other with the Indilinx based V128 not far behind. Crucial however give the most impressive result. Moving to the opposite end of the spectrum with the 1GB/42 file test a similar trend of result occurs however the results are much closer due to the high speed of each SSD, mostly completing the task in 11-13 seconds. Crucial are once again very quick in this particular area finishing in 6 seconds.
