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.

I've restructured these charts to group by test as opposed to by SSD. It should make readability and comparisons a bit easier. Feedback is welcome here.

This test does bulk file writes and copies (from/to) the SSD, and as we can see here, most do well, save the old SSD 310. The VelociRaptor does well in write-only operations, but when copying within the same drive, the additional latency of rotational media wastes a lot of time on seeks.
