about a month ago i shared a tip about running winsat from the command line. here’s some more detail and results from various systems i have available.
figure 1: this is from a traditional laptop hard drive
figure 2: this is from a computer running an intel solid state hard drive
figure 3: here’s a desktop hard drive (1.5 tb)
i didn’t have to run these tests to determine the solid state hard drive is faster (i’ve done some tests from installing software to just general use where the disk was a bottle neck and the solid state hard drive typically ran the same test or task in half the time), but these tests do give you an indication of what a solid state device can do from an experience standpoint.
