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.

 

 

 

This is where the Raptor X really shows its true colours. With the higher plater rotation speed, it's a lot quicker to read and write data to and from the drive.
