DiskBench - Directory Copy

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 2.6.2.0

 

Note: In this test, we use the Lenovo W530 Mobile Workstation and a SuperSpeed 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 transferred. The 15GB Block is the same data we built for the Data on Disk Testing and is a mix of compressible and incompressible data.

Transferring data to and from an SSD happens on notebooks quite often. Here we transfer 15.2GB of mixed data to the drive and then transfer it from the target drive to a SLC SSD.

 

The PNY Optima does well in these tests - nearly 300 MB/s read and just 230 MB/s write speeds.
