what is the best benchmark to use to see how the drives will actually perform?
I see some people mention 4k reads
what should i look at regarding writes?
it seems like it might be a bigger number since it would lay down the write in an somewhat optimized way but the reads will just have to come from wherever they are.
also can I actually increase performance of regular hard drives by doing a slow format with a certain settings?
my current OS drives are short stroked and it seems to help some.
what is the as ssd benchmark
i see that occasionally and it gives lower performance numbers then atto which i belive is not real world performance but the best possible number under the best possible conditions.
is pc mark 7 most popular and 3dmark for gamers or something?
