PFS2 compared to other filesystems

This was a practise test performed in the shell on an A4000/040 with an IDE Quantum Maverick 540. Each number is in seconds and is an average of the same test performed several times. When using more files, the distance between PFS2 and SFS and FFS will be even greater, just like when using SCSI. All tests were done under exactly the same circumstances.

TOTAL: 2633 files - 65 directories - 39900 blocks

Copy List Delete
PFS2 127 10 19
SFS 211 13 45
DOS5 607 13 60

If you think we cheated on these results, have a look at Amiga Format's Christmas issue. They performed a similar test and the result was about the same.
