Benchmarks: File Copy Test
The Samsung Spinpoint F1 hard drive took a total of 3 minutes and 34 seconds to copy the 6GB test file, giving it an average transfer rate of 28MB/s. The Intel X25-M for example took 1 minute and 24 seconds to copy the same file, as it produced an average transfer speed of 71.2MB/s. Surprisingly the OCZ Agility was even faster than this, reaching 78.4MB/s, while the A-Data S592 averaged 82.3MB/s.
The original Vertex could achieve an average transfer speed of 87.1MB/s, while the new OCZ Vertex Turbo was capable of an impressive 104.3MB/s, meaning it copied the 6GB file in under a minute, making it the only SSD to break the minute barrier. The Corsair P Series 128GB took 1 minute and 3 seconds to copy the 6GB file, giving it an average transfer rate of 94.7MB/s.
