To test real life performance of a drive we use a mix of folder/file types and by using the FastCopy utility (which gives a time as well as MB/s result) we record the performance of drive reading from & writing to a 256GB Samsung SSD850 PRO.
100GB data file.
60GB iso image.
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).
5GB (1.5bn pixel) photo.
The T5 had no problems dealing with our real life file tests, even the 60GB Steam and 50GB file folders, so often a stumbling block for drives were dealt with fairly easily, at over 400MB/s for both folders in both reads and writes.
The drive took just under three and a half minutes to write a 100GB file to disk and just under two minutes to copy a 60GB iso image.
