Large File Transfer and Backup File Read

Real World File Transfer

Let’s see how real-world performance was when writing a movie folder containing seven 1080P movies over to the SSD. For this test, we are going to measure write performance by copying a 30.6GB folder of movies off from the drive being tested back to itself to see how performance looks. This action is basically a long linear sequential write operation and punishes the SLC Cache on many drives.

When it comes to writing a bunch of data to the drive without any breaks, the XPG GAMMIX S50 Lite finished with an average speed of 509.2 MB/s, which puts is down in the bottom of the pack.

CustomRead File Test

The next custom test that we are going to do is how fast each drive can read a compressed folder. For this we backed up a Steam copy of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds for the test file. The compressed folder contains 59 titles and is 27.3 GB (29,409,916,771 bytes) in size.

XPG GAMMIX S50 Lite PUBG Backup Read

When it comes to reading a compressed Steam Backup file the XPG GAMMIX S50 Lite 1TB drive finished with an impressive read speed of 1871.2 MB/s. So, it is pretty good reading compressed files and not that great moving around large chunks of data!
