Testing Approach

Two platforms were
used to perform testing:

  1. An OakGate Test Unit,
    as is used in our review of SSDs
  2. A Z77 based
    Workstation, running Windows 8.1

The Workstation
was used to run HD Tune Pro 5.50, Atto, and Anvil benchmarks.

The OakGate Unit
was used to perform the same Myce/OakGate Reads & Writes Tests and 4K Mixed
Reads/Writes Tests as are a standard part of our Enterprise Solid State Storage
tests.
