So I have finally done it. Bought a new computer.
Among the fancy hardware is a 64GB solid state disk used for O/S = 'Windows 7 Beta'.
As I haven't tried windows 7 on another disk, I can't really see if its faster than a normal disk, but it is fast. I have benchmarked it using Roadkil's Disk Speed V2.0 , I will leave the judging to you:
First the disk info, it is a Transcend 2.5" Solid State Disk. Disk speed reports the following:
And the good stuff, Benchmark.
I did two test, and the numbers does fluctate, but the general picture is the same as above. Notice the fast acces time and excellent random read speeds.
Just for comparison I benched my older Hardisk with disk.
I gues the O/S is happy about the fast access time and random read speed for the solid state disk. But it is interesting that the old disk actually is faster with linear read on small files... anyway thats it for now.
More interesting, HD-Tune says the following,
For the SSD
And the old disk
