CyQve RW8080A FireWire CD-RW

2. Data Tests

Data Tests

Test Method

- SCSI Mechanic v3.0x: This was used to compare the drive's  I/O performance against other various CDR-W drives (see charts). We used a pressed CD containing PlexTools v1.08 for all tests.
- Nero CD Speed v0.84b was also used to check the drive's performance with pressed CDs. For that test, we also used the PlexTools v1.08 pressed CD.

- SCSI Mechanic v3.0x results

CyQ've RW8080A did not perform very well in the SCSI Mechanic test. In both Random and Sequential tests, the drive takes the third position behind PlexWriter PX-S88TU and Teac CD-W280PU. In the same sector reading test, things are tougher for the CyQ've drive, since it gave just a 968 Kb/s result.

- Nero CD Speed v0.84 results: (CyQ've RW8080A CD Speed graphs)

Using Nero CD Speed 0.84, we confirmed the SCSI Mechanic results. PleXWriter PX-S88TU and TEAC CD-RW280PU are faster than CyQ've RW8080A. CyQ've RW8080A starts reading at 10.86X, in faster speed than Teac, but fails to end up at a compatible to the other drive's speed. As a result, the drive takes the third position with a 16,8X average speed performance.

In the Random seek test, CyQ've RW8080A is faster than the Plextor drive. TEAC models usually have the lowest seek times, and from our tests this was confirmed once again.

- PSX Pressed Media

For this test we used the PSX game 'NBA Jam Extreme' and we ripped the image to HD with CloneCD. We measured the reading times for both tested drives. Plextor is the winner here with only 122secs, while the TEAC needs 28 more seconds to complete the image. CyQ've RW8080A is slower again with 172 sec for the whole task.

- CDR Media: (CyQ've RW8080A CD Speed graphs)

With CDR media, all the drives performed better than with the pressed test disc. The PleXWriter still holds the first place, with 18.53X while Teac and CyQ've follow with 18,39X and 16.92X, respectively. CyQ've RW8080A does not manage to reach a high enough speed in the end, so its average speed is limited to 16.92X.
