WorldBench overall performance
WorldBench uses scripting to step through a series of tasks in common Windows applications. It then produces an overall score. WorldBench also spits out individual results for its component application tests, allowing us to compare performance in each. We'll look at the overall score, and then we'll show individual application results alongside the results from some of our own application tests.
Well that's not encouraging. The IDE Flash scores lower than even the 4,200-RPM Fujitsu MHV2040AT in WorldBench. Let's break down the overall score into individual application tests to see what's holding back the flash drive's performance.
Multimedia editing and encoding
Windows Media Encoder
VideoWave Movie Creator
Although it's competitive in the MusicMatch Jukebox and Windows Media Encoder tests, the IDE Flash drive is way off the pace in Premiere, where it's nearly two times slower than our traditional 2.5" ATA drives. The IDE Flash is also a little slow in Movie Creator, although not by as massive a margin.
