To test the real life performance of a drive we use a number of different file folders to write to and read back from the drive under test. The files are written from/read back to a 256GB SSD (Samsung SSD850 Pro)
The file folders are made up as follows:-
60GB Steam folder – 29,521 files
50GB File folder – 28,523 files
12GB Movie folder – 24 files (mix of Blu-ray and 4K files)
10GB Photo folder – 621 files (mix of .png, raw and .jpeg images)
10GB Audio folder – 1,483 files (mix of mp3 and .flac files)
The CS2211 shows good transfer speeds both writing to and reading from the drive whatever the file type or size.
