Performance in Intel IOMeter WorkStation Pattern
With the help of this pattern the benchmark imitates the workload typical of a regular workstation, which is limited at 32 requests queue. The results were taken for the drives formatted as a single partition, and as a 32GB partition.
This graph shows the controller efficiency during the HDD requests processing. The results dispersion is not that big, though the advantage of VIA VT6212 over the opponents is evident. VT6202 and Intel ICH5 show about the same performance, so it is pretty hard to name the winner.
The performance index diagram clears the situation. The best is VIA VT6212, then comes VIA VT6202 and the last one of the three is Intel ICH5.
The results obtained in a 32GB partition of the drive appear generally higher for all controller tested. Although the testing participants are still positioned in the same way. The most preferable one of the three is still the newcomer – VIA VT6212. Intel ICH5 is a little bit slower. The poorest performance of the three in this test belongs to VIA VT6202.
The performance index diagram shows perfectly the detailed results. The performance difference between the three controllers is negligible, and the positioning of the controllers tested remains the same as in the previous case.
