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. 

File creation is pretty much limited by the write speed limits or bottlenecks of all of the various test units. The hard limit of the 64GB 830 puts it right on par with the 300GB Intel SSD 320. While the speed is not great for that model, it’s very good considering the small capacity point of that model.

Since all three Samsung 830 Series models read at the same approximate speeds, the gap thins out amongst those three, and the faster/larger of the two turn in some solid numbers.
