I recently hang out at a Burger King with a friend of mine, and we were bored. So, we decided to test which Palm accesses VFS memory the fastest.
We had a Palm Tungsten T3, a Palm Tungsten E2 and a Palm Tungsten T5. The card used was a SimpleTech/HP 1GB SD card, and the benchmark program used was VFSMark(the standard – the numbers don’t mean anything but everyone publishes them ). We ran each benchmark twice and then averaged the results.
Anyways, to cut a long story short – the Palm Tungsten T5 is the fastest, with the Palm Tungsten T3 second and the Palm Tungsten E2 being third.
The Palm Tungsten T3 and the Palm Tungsten T5 were more-less on par when reading data was concerned, the E2 was already lagging behind seriously in this discipline. When writing was concerned, the Palm Tungsten T5 overtook both Palm Tungsten T3 and Palm Tungsten E2 significantly. The Palm Tungsten T3 usually was a bit faster than the low-end Palm Tungsten E2 though!
What do you think?
