Benchmarks: Real-World Applications
Despite the very poor showing in the file copy tests the Samsung SSD 840 120GB did the unexpected and completed the Red Orchestra 2 installation in just 104 seconds based on an average of three installs. This made it slightly faster than the 106 seconds it took the OCZ Vertex 4 128GB and considerably faster than the 132 seconds it took the Crucial m4 128GB.
Again the Samsung SSD 840 120GB was the fastest SSD tested despite its poor showing in the file copy tests. When running the MSE scan on the Windows System32 folder the Samsung drive took just 45 seconds while the Crucial m4 128GB took 48 seconds and the OCZ Vertex 4 128GB 49 seconds.
