Performance in FC-Test
Now it’s high time we tested the efficiency of our controllers in FC-Test, which differs from the other benchmarks by the realism of the testing environment. We ran the tests for NTFS and FAT32 file systems.
We will start the discussion with FAT32:
The results of file creation show that VIA VT6212 catches up with Intel ICH5. The gap between them is really small. However, the third competitor, VT6202, is much farther behind the leaders.
File reading diagram demonstrates that Intel ICH5 is considerably ahead of the rivals. Our today’s main hero, VIA VT6212 controller falls behind the leader but retains its advantage over the VT6202 predecessor.
File copy within a single partition again gives the laurels to Intel ICH5. VIA VT6212 is unable to catch up with the winner, but is considerably ahead of the VT6202.
In case of file copying from one partition to another VT6212 manages to reduce the gap to the leader, Intel ICH5. at the same time, VIA VT6202 is as usual the slowest.
