Default What is your WinSAT score? :D

- Download Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...1-2497c146af15
- open a command prompt, browse to where you installed the Upgrade Advisor (standard c:\program files\microsoft windows 7 upgrade advisor beta)
then type:
Winsat disk -drive c -ran -write -count 10


It will run a random write test on your c: drive to measure performance; it will return on single value in Mb/s; more info you can find here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/940226

On Dell Latitude E6400 with 160Gb Intel X25-M G2 SSD and HDD is encrypted!

expected score on a traditional laptop HDD, also gives you a nice indication of possible speed boost going to SSD

I thought X25's were limited to around 80MB/s writes... That looks like an average score?

Here's my results.

Yes. It starts to run, then crashes about 5 seconds into the test.

That is what I was figuring.

I'm not sure the tool is directly comparable to the WinSat program built into Windows 7 since MS changed the scale/tests around a few times during its development... but I ran the commands on the Windows\System32 WinSat program.

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7100]
Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:\Windows\System32>Winsat disk -drive c -ran -write -count 10
Windows System Assessment Tool
> Running: Feature Enumeration ''
> Run Time 00:00:00.00
> Running: Storage Assessment '-drive c -ran -write -count 10'
> Run Time 00:00:59.20
> Disk Random 16.0 Write 4.21 MB/s
> Total Run Time 00:00:59.84

So his notebook HDD beats a 750GB 7200.10 drive? Disk system scores a 5.8 using their # scale.

if that 750gb HDD is fragmented, it might well be, yes

Not much better here:

Windows System Assessment Tool
> Running: Feature Enumeration ''
> Run Time 00:00:00.00
> Running: Storage Assessment '-drive c -ran -write -count 10'
> Run Time 00:00:48.45
> Disk Random 16.0 Write 4.10 MB/s
> Total Run Time 00:00:50.31

System: (standard settings, lest stated otherwise)
Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bits (U.S.)
Intel E8400
P5K-E Wifi
ASUS EN8800GTS 512TOP
Kingston HyperX PC8500@1066MHz
Antec True Power Quattro 850W

'C' is a 50GB partition of a Seagate S-ATA 250GB, fully defragged with Diskeeper 2009...

Ran it again under WIn7 without encryption, same Intel SSD
>> 74.13Mb/s

that's about 18 times faster than your C drive

Well, I'm 48 after all... can't expect me to go that fast still


But meanwhile, my right eye is leering at Snoopy lying on his doghouse (that's my money-box), ready to wring every penny from his gut for an SSD


I'll keep you informed...
