Performance Testing Part Two: Windows 7 Installed
Generally speaking the more you fill up a drive (any drive) the slower it will go, hence this second testing section where I install Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit and boot off it for a second go around of testing. Again we start with ATTO.
ATTO at Defaults
Didn't lose much on the low end and the high end averages faster. I'll take it! Let's try queue 10...
ATTO at Queue10
Same story here. Installing windows doesn't put much a dent in the ATTO performance, this is nice to see.
AS SSD shows better performance almost across the board. Crazy stuff.
Very similar performance here too, some tests score higher some tests score a bit lower. Overall there is less of a drop than usual.
PCMark05 took a hit, though less of one than I was expecting. Often times performance drops by half or more in PC05 once there is data on a drive. I continue to be impressed.
Across the board the drive didn't lose much, if any, performance with Windows installed. I like it!
I think it's time to crack this thing open and see how OCZ did it, don't you?
