Published: 20th December 2006 | Source: OCZ | Price: |Test Setup
The following benchmarks have been conducted using the test system specified below:
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6700
Memory: Mushkin XP2-8500 DDR2
Motherboard: Intel "Bad Axe" D975XBX
Hard Disk: 2x Hitachi 80gb SATA2 RAID0
Testing of the drives transfer speed will be performed using both Sisoft Sandra XIb and HDTach benchmarking programs. Please note that the Sisoft Sandra test (bottom-left) shows comparison figures against internal hard disks and therefore should be taken for its results only rather than comparison graphs.
Sandra also provides a removable storage benchmark utility for comparing the performance of flash based products against eachother. From the results on the right we can see that the Rally2 is a respectable portion faster than any of the other flash drives used in the testing with a rated speed of 5202 operations per minute.
