X-Bit Labs File Copy Test is a real-world benchmark used to measure the performance of IDE subsystems. In this test, we time how long it takes to copy 523MB worth of data (various downloaded setup files) from one place to another with File Copy Test program optimizations disabled to help provide the most accurate time possible.
In our first real-world test demonstrating read speeds, the Seagate desktop hard disk drive continues to lead.
It is interesting to note that in a real-world situation, the lead has been shrunk to about 45% whereas HD Tach was showing about a 62% performance advantage in favor of the Seagate hard drive. The Team SSD manages to continue its lead over the Crucial pen drive.
Our final test is a demonstration of real-world write speeds, something which flash memory is known for being slower at compared to hard disk drives.
When we copy data from the master drive RAID 0 array, we see that the Seagate hard drive is able to write over twice as fast as the Team SSD but the SSD is still able to maintain its lead over the high-end USB 2.0 pen drive.
