For testing I am going to be burning 1GB and 500MB files to DVD, and timing the difference between the Asus Drive, the LG drives IDE (GSA-H50N) and the SATA (GSA-H62N) drives. I will also be burn a 100MB file to CD and seeing how each of these driver perform against each other. All drives will be tested at 16X for DVD and 48X for CD, due to the fact I cannot do 20x on all of the test drives. I will also perform a CPU usage test, a transfer rate (both CD and DVD) test, and a speed test on each of the optical drives. I will be using Nero as my burning platform.
- Intel Core Duo E6600 Processor
- 2 Gigs Kingston PC2 5300
- Asus P5B Motherboard
- Nvidea 8600GTS Video Card
- 500watt Power Supply
- 320GB Seagate SATA 2 HD
- Asus 20x20 Sata, and X
- Creative Fatal1ty
- Windows XP SP 2
- LG DVD GSA-H62N (SATA)
- LG DVD GSA-H50N (IDE)
Remember, the lower the number on this test, the better the drive performed.
The lower the time in ms the better the drive performed in this test.
So, we see in these tests that the Asus didn't perform as well as I would hope it would. Let's see if the next batch of tests changes the performance.
