More interesting would be benchmarking NTFS-3g vs Windows 7 NTFS. I've heard the performance is very good with NTFS-3g, and there's apparently a souped-up embedded version that's crazy fast.
That would be an interesting test.
Like always they use default settings, so windows defender will probably run. Its fair to assume, that >90% of the W7 users will leave it that way. Sure all those tests are far from being fair or objective, but if you are comparing apples and oranges, you still might be able to draw a conclusion which tastes better.
And I would also like to see a NTFS-3G being thrown into the mix.
And while some tests are quite questionable, the wall-powered tests doesn't seem to be a big letdown. I'd assume Linux wouldn't magically activate all the power-saving options only when running on batteries.
Not knowing if it is enabled or not makes these tests pointless.
I've asked a question, I expect an answer not a wild guess. Assumptions are meaningless.Quote:
It wouldn't make sense if antivirus was running, so you can be nearly sure it wasn't.
One thing that is important to note, are the drives running in AHCI mode or IDE Mode and if running in AHCI mode are you using the built in microsoft drivers or Intels chipset drivers. There is quite a performance difference between the modes and drivers.
The ntfs-3g port to OpenSolaris is also slow. (Yes, "famous troll is back")
