Intel SRT - File Copy Test

As we mentioned earlier, Intel's Smart Response Technology provides no real performance boost when working with large files. When paired with an SSD and SRT, our test HDD improved by 3MB/s, or a mere 11%.

We witnessed the same exact gain in our program file copy test: the SSD/HDD duo was 12% faster.

That speed advantage dipped down to only 8% in our game copy test, which worked out to just under 4MB/s.
