Fusion-io ioXtreme PCI Express SSD Review
File Transfer Tests
** Please note that we utilized a Fusion-io ioDrive card as our source drive in some of the following tests, to read files from or copy files to, for our read and write measurements of all reference products and the ioXtreme cards. This affords us the luxury of much higher available bandwidth from the source or target drive, such that it would not be the limiting factor in a given test condition. We've also included some measurements with a standard WD Raptor 150GB hard drive as our source or target drive, to offer a more practical usage model and benchmark measurement.
Though still a little on the large side, we think our custom multi-file transfer test is a bit more representative of a day to day workload that and end user may put upon the product. Here we've transferred the same 3.5GB of data to and from the drives we tested, only this time it was comprised of a bunch of 100MB+ sized files (video files to be specific). In this test, the ioXtreme drives still can't catch the Z-Drive with writes, unless they are striped together in RAID 0. For read performance, the ioXtreme single card setups beat all competitors with a couple of seconds to spare versus the Z-Drive.
