Benchmarks: SiSoft Sandra 2002 and Burn Tests

SiSoft Sandra 2002 Pro CDROM Benchmarks Source: Sandra

Sandra is designed to test the theoretical power of a complete system and individual components. The numbers taken though are again, purely theoretical and may not represent real world performance.

Again the SM-352 scores a drive index of 2098, lower than that of the pure CDRW MSI CR52A-A2, but still good. The SM-352 has a pretty high access time, but that seems to be the trend with 52X drives.

Nero CD Speed 99 - Burn Test - Benchmarks Source: Ahead Software

Nero's CD Speed burn tests are done twice, once with a CDR rated to 1x-24x burn speed, and a CD-RW rated to 4x-10x. Each disk was test with files of about 640MB in size. This test is done by simply placing blank recording media into the burner and running CD Speed 99; the software will detect if it is CD-R or CD-R/W media and run the appropriate tests.

The Samsung SM-352 was able to hit the 52x CD-R writing speed but then performance tailed off. CD-RW performance was pretty good and was able to match the 24x CD-RW rating.
