what random read speed results is everyone seeing using 'Benchmark Drive'?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering what kind of random read speed others are seeing when executing 'Benchmark Drive'?

 

For me, the result is 1.30MB/s (with 19% fragmentation). This is awful of course, but I have no idea how Defraggler does the random read speed test, so maybe results are low for a lot of people.

Anyway, as such a number on itself doesn't say a lot without numbers to compare it to, I thought it'd be interesting if others posted their read speed as well, and the disk they're getting the results on.

 

This is on a Seagate ST9320423AS (a Momentus 7200.4 SATA 3Gb/s 320-GB disk), Windows 7 and version 2.08.373 of Defraggler.

On a Seagate ST310005 24AS SATA 1,000,204,886,016 bytes (931.51339 gigabytes) I show three successive readings: 16.67, 16.35, 16.29 MB/s with 1% frag excluding restore points and hibernates.

On a Benchmark icon, I get a Random Read Speed of 32.90MB/s ? On a ST3250 HD, SATA/300 Win XP Home Duo core Intel..... I'm not sure I understand what the Benchmark does?

Hi,

I have a pair of Seagate Barracuda 1000GB drives SATA II,

Both drives showed apparently slow figures of 3 - 5MB/s but following defrag figures for both moved up to 50 to 70MB/s.

 

Must admit I was intrigued more by how the DF (command line defrag) seems so much faster that the GUI version at carrying out a defrag, but then thats a different topic..

This was right after a File Defrag, so there was 0% fragmentation (excluding restore points and hibernates)... Lenovo T410 laptop, Intel i7, 8GB, Win7 Pro x64 SP1, Hitachi Travelstar 7K500 HTS725032A9A364, 320GB SATA.

 

Benchmark - 87.61 MB/s

I am observing inconsistencies between an initial benchmark and subsequent executions.  When opening Defraggler a benchmark is executed and the RRS (Random Read Speed) is 11.38 MB/s but the following five executions are an avg. of 17 MB/s.  1)  Why is there such a difference between the initial and any proceeding, and 2) why does the group of executions after the initial never have a dip like the initial?

 

Thank you.
