Note: In this test we use the Lenovo W530 Mobile Workstation and a SuperSSpeed S301 SLC 128GB SSD to move a 15GB block of data to and from the target drive. This is part of our real world test regiment. Roughly 45GB of data resides on the target drive before the '15GB Block' is transfer. The 15GB Block is the same data we built for the Data on Disk Testing and is a mix of compressible and incompressible data.
Our directory copy test uses a mix of compressible and incompressible files mixed to the same percentage as found on my daily use notebook when the test was constructed. The incompressible data hurts the LSI SandForce based drives, but the PNY Prevail Elite still outperforms the Samsung 840 in both reading and writing the test folder to and from the drive.
