During our testing procedures, we used the configuration listed below. The only variable component between each benchmarking session was the drive being tested.Hardware Configuration

Software Configuration

  • Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit using NTFS files system
  • Intel INF Driver Version: 9.2.0.1016
  • AMD Video Driver Version: Catalyst 11.5

Benchmarking Software

Error MarginWe adopted a 3% error margin in our tests, meaning performance differences less than 3% can’t be considered meaningful. Therefore, when the performance difference between two products is less than 3%, we consider them to have similar performance.
