Testing Methodologies

Our SSDs have recently been moved to a new test system as the Intel P67 setup has been decommissioned for the newer Intel Z77. As a result, the database whilst still having a reasonable number of test subjects to compare against isn’t as extensive as we would like so keep a look out over the coming weeks for more additions!

The system is formatted and a fresh version of Windows is installed with just drives in place - no additional applications. Windows is then updated to the latest release and the drivers are installed. Included in the list of benchmarks are the following applications:

ATTO Disk Benchmark v2.46
CrystalDiskMark 3.0
SiSoftware SANDRA 2012
Windows 7 Boot Time Test

CPU Intel Core i5 2500K
