I’ve just changed PC, so now I have a free PCI-Express slot, so I can install a Firewire 800 card.
Am I likely to notice a significant improvement if I switch to Firewire? I realise the answer is “It depends”, but the cost is not all that great so even a moderate improvement would be welcome.
I’d like to compare the speeds I’m currently getting from the USB2 Drobo, my native SATA C: drive, and a prediction of the Drobo speed with Firewire.
Do I have to install a Mac so I can run the Kona system test, or is it easier to use something more appropriate to my Windows XP?
