We use DiskBench to time a 28.6GB block (9,882 files in 1,247 folders) of mostly incompressible random data, as it's transferred from our OS array, to our test drive/array. We then read from a 6GB zip file that's part of our 28.6GB data block, in order to determine the test drive/array's read transfer rate. The system is restarted prior to the read test to clear any cached data; insuring an accurate test result.


Write Transfer Rate




The 600 series real-world, random write performance is class leading.


Read Transfer Rate




The larger capacity 600 series array has better read transfer performance than the smaller capacity 600 array. Read transfers are slower than the other array's on our chart.




This test is definitely where the rubber meets the road. This is a huge chunk of random incompressible data that we're transferring. The pair of 480GB Seagate 600 series SSD's have the best write transfer rate of any two drive SATA based arrays we've ever tested.
