is at present the fastest CD filesystem for Amiga computers. Below please
find the results from speed measurements for AllegroCDFS and the very popular
filesystem of CacheCDFS. For the test, a CD-ROM enclosed with the Amiga
Format No. 12/99 was used.
The test consisted in copying the contents of the -websites-\F1_GP drawer from the CD-ROM to RAM:. This folder includes over 1,100 files for the total size of 19,083,695 bytes. The test has been performed on computers fitted with the most popular turbo cards with 32MB RAM.

ver. 2.1 (24 Oct 1999)
CacheCDFS ver. 42.19 (10 Jun 1999) from AmigaOS 3.5
The test was made on Amiga 1200 rev.2B with PowerFlyer Gold with the CD-ROM x48 (SAMSUNG SC-148) drive switched to PIO-4.
The test was made with AF CD No.46 (Amiga Format Issue 130 December 1999)
The test program (script):
CD2:-websites-/start.html ram: ; *** CD-ROM motor start ***
date ; *** start copying ***
copy CD2:-websites-/F1_GP ram:F1_GP ALL QUIET
date ; *** end copying ***
delete ram:F1_GP ALL QUIET
How long each of these operation take?
