Performance in CD WinBench 99
As usual, I tested the drives in WinBench 99 using a molded CD-ROM and two its copies made on CD-R and CD-RW discs.
There’s a single flaw at the beginning of the graphs for the CD-R and CD-RW discs. Otherwise, the drive is blameless.
The table and the diagrams above tell us that the drive doesn’t offer an exceptional performance when processing CD media. The CD-ROM WinMark scores are rather average. Note that although the data-transfer graph for the CD-ROM had the most perfect shape, the measured access time proved to be the worst with that disc and higher than specified.
