Many users complain that I/O Meter is too complicated of a benchmark to replicate results so my quest to find an alternative was started. Passmark has added several multi-user tests that measure a hard drives ability to operate in a multi-user environment.



The tests use different settings to mimic basic multi-user operations as they would play out on your server. Variances is read / write percentage as well as random / sequential reads are common in certain applications, Web Servers read nearly 100% of the time while Database Servers write a small amount of data.


The Workstation test is the only single user environment and will be similar to how you use your system at home.

The workstation test shows that the M225 is faster than the Intel X25-M, a test designed to show multitasking performance. The Intel controller is still the fastest when it comes to web and file server tests and doubles the performance of the M225 in database tests.


Crucial is marketing the M225 for notebook users so for most people these tests have little value, but the high workstation test numbers give us all an accurate score for what to expect as a power user using a notebook.
