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 optimizations disabled to help provide the most accurate time possible.




In our first real-world file copy test from test drive to master drive we see that the new Seagate drives are able to beat the Raptor by 1MB/s while the older 7200.7 is a long way behind, again.




This time we run the same tests but copy the files to the same drive. Here the Raptor drive just takes the lead.
