ODD Benchmarks: Sandra 2011, Nero DiskSpeed Data / Audio

SiSoft Sandra 2011 - Optical Drive Tests 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. Test media for this benchmark was an 8.4GB DVD-R DL disk.

Lite-on's iHAS524 does quite well in SiSoft Sandra's optical drive tests.

Nero DiskSpeed 4: CD Data Media Source: Ahead Software

DiskSpeed 4 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 CD-R or CD-RW as the test disk may impact the results slightly, so pressed CD-ROM media is the standard testing tool.

The Lite-On iHAS524 does a good job in this test as well.

Nero DiskSpeed 4: CD Audio Media Source: Ahead Software

Nero DiskSpeed 4 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.
