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.
While the X25-M G2 shows an improvement over it’s G1 brother, its limited write speeds cause if to suffer at the hands of the Indilinx-controlled Vertex and Samsung-controlled Summit. We will be adding ‘final’ Summit figures to the mix over the next few days.
