Results yielded from Intel's IOMeter
are very interesting indeed! A comparison of the lct15 against the Maxtor DiamondMax 60
under a Linear
(lighter than what's encountered in real usage) Workstation
load results in the lct15 being walloped... it falls behind the Maxtor by nearly 25%. An intriguing trend emerges as loads increase, however. The lc15 appears to be equipped with adept electronics as this 25% discrepancy narrows down to only 6% in Moderate
The lct15's firmware allows it to compete quite favorably against Seagate's offering in IOMeter. Its raw low-level performance causes it to shadow the U10 by 6% in Linear loads. However, in every other situation the Fireball manages to pull ahead... peaking with a 10% victory under Light conditions. Not too shabby... but then again simply the faster of two very sluggish drives.
