SSD Roundup June 2009

File Copy Tests

The final test in this review involves two file copy operations. For each test the drives are acting as the source and destination for the file and as a result the controller and cache are responsible for maintaining performance during read and write operations. Our first test uses a 1.1 GB file which allows us to see how the drives perform during a short copy operation; the second file is 17.4 GB (high definition video content) which demonstrates the performance over a longer time.

When copying a smaller file we see that the short term speed of the OCZ Summit is very impressive and that this is one scenario where the Super Talent UltraDrive is able to outperform the Intel X25-M. It is also worth noting that it is also faster than the 64 GB Falcon which tells us this is a scenario where the additional capacity and channels of the larger SSD show a benefit.


In the large file copy test the SSDs show huge benefits over the Western Digital drive, even the value orientated Kingston model completes the transfer over two and a half minutes quicker. When looking at the more expensive drives we see that considering its age the X25-M still provides great performance, finishing quicker than the G.Skill Falcon. The stand out performer has to be the OCZ summit once again. This is a test where impressive read/write specifications combine with the large cache and high sustained write to significantly outperform the competition.
