Following up on my previous post Peter asked if he could see a 24 hour run on the Intel drive… took me a few days because I am doing some testing on a few other things, but I kicked a run off yesterday before leaving the Vegas airport… Here ya go:
These are roughly 10 minute TPM averages. As you can see their is a definate decline in performance the longer the drive is active. Its realtively small% wise, only about 6% off of peak… but the delcine is easy to spot.
What’s this mean? It you beat the hell out of the drive over a long contious period things slow down the longer the drive is in continuous use. Just an FYI, the drive was 78% full during these tests.
