X-Bit Labs FC Test - 2.3GB Transfer

 

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 2.3GB worth of data (four x 590MB files) onto the same hard disk drive with File Copy Test program optimisations disabled to help provide the most accurate time possible.

 

 

 

As you can see the native option is a lot faster then the PCI solution. When transferring this amount of data, the PCI bus is getting flooded and has no chance of keeping up with a native solution. We found it interesting to see that the Single drive was just as quick as the RAID setup.
