It's in Intel's benchmark
that the Fireball Plus LM shines. A fast access time
combined with what must be stellar firmware power the LM to the top of the charts, allowing it to uniformly best the DiamondMax Plus 40
across the board.
In a simple linear test under a Workstation Access Pattern, the LM surpasses the Plus 40 by 12%. The difference rises to 15% in Very Light, Light, and Moderate Loads. Finally, in a Heavy Load situation, the LM tops the Plus 40 by a rather beefy 20%.
As evidenced by the above graphs, the Quantum unit's showing is quite impressive. We're witnessing a drive that's easily in a class of its own.
