Hm, obviously we could start right from the beginning and ask people with aic
controllers and symbios controllers for some comparison figures. Hopefully some
people are interested.

Here we go:
Hello out there :-)
we need your help. If you own a scsi-controller from adaptec or one with
ncr/symbios chipset can you please do the following:
reboot your box. Start xcdroast and read in a data cd. Tell us: brand of your
cdrom, how much RAM you have, processor type, throughput as measured by
xcdroast. Nice would be if you try several times.
We are not really interested in the hard figures, but want to extract some
"global" tendency.

Thank you for your cooperation,


PS: my values are (I obviously have both controllers):


Drive TEAC-CD-532S (30x), 1 GB RAM, 2 x PIII 1GHz
test 1: 2998,9 kB/s
test 2: 2968,4 kB/s
test 3: 3168,2 kB/s

Tekram (symbios)
