Using Nero CD-DVD speed application we will test the transfer rates for both drives for both DVD and CD.





The faster the drive gets up to speed in these benchmarks, the better the drive is performing. You will notice a graph in the picture, but pay closer attention to the number given on the side.



DVD transfer rate (IDE)



DVD transfer rate (SATA)



So going by the numbers, we can see the SATA is inching ahead of the IDE in the DVD test. Now we'll see how it does in the CD test.



CD transfer rate (IDE)



CD transfer rate (SATA)



Again we see SATA pulling ahead, this time with a much more forcefull lead over the IDE drive.



CPU usage test:

One thing that is important to most enthusiasts is resources. How much or how little resources your computer has at any given time seriously effects system performance. In this test we will see how your CPU is effected by IDE and SATA at 8X. The lower the CPU usage, the better.
