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.

 

 

 

Here we can see that the results are almost identical between the Seagate 7200.8 and 7200.9. This is quite possibly because the drive isn't going though the SATA buses as much since the partitions are on the same drive.
