Custom File Transfer Tests

Our next series of tests are what you might call more "crude measurements" in that we simply fired up our trusty stop-watch and clocked the time it took to complete a copy and paste command of a single large file or a bunch of large files from one storage volume in our test system to another.

** Please note that we utilized a Fusion-io ioXterme card as our source drive in the following tests, to read files from or copy files to, for our read and write measurements.  This affords us the luxury of much higher available bandwidth from the source drive or to a target drive, such that either direction would not be as much of a limiting factor in any given test condition.

Here times are tightly grouped at the top of the stack, with the OCZ RevoDrive 3 X2 taking more decisive edge versus the other PCI Express solutions in our test.  With this test group, larger sequential transfers were noticeably faster on the OCZ RevoDrive 3 X2 especially.
