ODD Benchmarks: Sandra 2009, Nero CD / Audio Speed

SiSoft Sandra 2008 Source: Sandra

Sandra is designed to test the theoretical power of a complete system as well as the individual components. The results are also purely theoretical and may not represent real world performance.

Lite-on's iHAS424 does quite well in SiSoft Sandra's drive index tests, second only to LG's GSA-H62N.

Nero CD Speed: Data Source: Ahead Software

CD Speed is a CD/DVD-ROM benchmark which can test the most important features of an optical drive. In this particular benchmark, we use a pressed CD-ROM with about 640MB of data as the test disk. Using a CDR or CDRW as the test disk may impact the results slightly, so a pressed disk is the standard testing tool.

The Lite-On iHAS424 does a good job in this test as well, with the highest average speed of any optical drives PCSTATS has tested so far.

Nero CD Speed: Audio Source: Ahead Software

CD Speed is a CD-ROM benchmark which can test the most important features of a CD-ROM drive. In this particular benchmark we use a pressed Audio CD with about 65 minutes of audio on it as the test disk. CDROMs in general have a harder time processing audio data, and hence the results can be drastically slower than equivalent 'pure' data tests.

Here we go from stellar results to just about average, with an average read speed of about 30x.
