Kingston SSDNow V Series 40GB Desktop Bundle Review (with RAID!)
PCPer File Copy Test
Our custom PCPer-FC test does some fairly simple file creation and
copy routines in order to test the storage system for speed. The
script creates a set of files of varying sizes, times the creation
process, then copies the same files to another partition on the same
hard drive and times the copy process as well. There are four file
patterns that we used to try and find any strong or weak points in the
hardware: 10 files @ 1000 MB each, 100 files @ 100 MB each, 500 files @
10 MB each and 1000 files at 1 MB each.
40 MB/sec write speeds put the SSDNow 40GB at the back of the pack in our file creation benchmark.
The pair of them fared better, roughly matching the X25-M G1.
File copies did not fare as well either, again due to the limited write speeds.
The RAID combo put it somewhere between a single G1 or G2 unit.
