Partial and Full Drive Performance
While it is important to know how a drive will perform under optimal conditions, more realistic scenarios are just as important. Knowing how drive will behave when partially or even nearly full than when it is empty is very important information to know. To quickly and accurately show this crucial information we have first filled the drive to 50% capacity and re-tested using both synthetic and real world tests. After the completion of this we then re-test at 75% and 90% of full capacity.
For our synthetic testing we have opted for our standard VMWare test.
Real World Results
For a real world application we have opted for our standard Adobe and Saints Row 3 tests.
