 First off remember system OS'es, and controllers, are always setup for caching and buffering, so use DirectIO, here is an example syntax that should work on most flavors of Linux/Unix, or try Cygwin on Windows to achieve the same. So to me it seems amazingly universal but you tell me, is there a more universal tool than "dd" out there that's more powerful and more standard for a fast memory to device copy test. First off remember system OS'es, and controllers, are always setup for caching and buffering, so use DirectIO, here is an example syntax that should work on most flavors of Linux/Unix, or try Cygwin on Windows to achieve the same.
