The New Zotac Mini-PC Absolutely Destroys the Old Dell Optiplex with a Very Good WD 1TB Hard Drive

I know I posted some disk drive speed tests when I first got the Zotac CI323 Mini-PC with a nifty Silicon Power 240GB SSD.

The bottom line here… the Dell and the Western Digital drive are absolutely no match in a straight up  drive test. The numbers are not even close! Obviously we are comparing a much old Dell to a PC that is much faster, but still…

Well I won’t say anything more… here are the Disk scores…incidentally, the Zotac, scored just about the same as the first time I tested it.

Here are the first tests on the Zotac SSD….

 

 

 

 

 

 

The results above are almost uncanny, truly coincidental and I have no clue why they are identical, although I am not complaining.

That covers testing for tonight,

Did Some Disk Speed Testing on The Hi12 This Evening

I was kind of at a loss of what to test next on the Hi12, especially after those amazing results from running it as a server for a bit over 24 hrs and still having 17% battery when I shut down the test!

But tonight I decided to to check out my USB 3.0 Sandisk Ultra flash drive and compare it to my internal eMMC drive. So the Sandisk flash drive was plugged in to the USB 3.0 port and did okay, although I would not call it stellar.

The internal eMMC drive was a bit better, but nowhere near the speeds of an SSD, which I, of course, certainly did not expect.

Below you will find the results of these tests:

HI12, Sandisk Ultra 3.0 Flash Drive
Hi12 internal eMMC drive

Lastly I ran a test on the Zotac Mini-PC with the same Sandisk 3.0 flash drive and the results are below.

Zotac Ci323 Mini-PC with the same Flash Drive

So the Flash drive was actually a bit faster, (on reads),on the Hi12, which is a curious result, but the Zotac is also being used for a lot of other stuff at the same time, including running at least 3 web sites.

That will be all for the evening,

Tim
