I've been trying to find the 2008.08.18 version of Iometer, but I can't find it on the SourceForge website, on on their Official website. So I have to ask, why is it so hard to find a software version of a product your using to test drives and where can I get this version?
The IOMeter version used by TH for testing, is a specific package they developed to run mutiple test in one session and download the required information they need for their article. I believe (could be wrong) but it runs all the IOmeter test and PCMark Vantage in one program function... So in other words, it is not available for download openly.
So, in essence, there is no direct way to verify their results. Interesting. I guess I'll go with the latest stable version (2006-07-27), or go to one of the latest dlevel versions (2008-06-22-rc2 or 1.1.0-rc1) then.
