I don't think so, the short answer is that you want a better formulated pile of questions, which means studying the area.

The following things can affect speed: Motherboard & chipset; bus type & speed; disk type, cache, loading, filesystem, mechanical/ssd, interface type & interface load; kernel; Size of operation - writing 1 file of 10 megs or 1000 files of 10k, etc.

  1. ...and the VERY FIRST HIT in Google for "how to calculate the max iops of a disk" is: http://www.ryanfrantz.com/posts/calculating-disk-iops/
  2. As said by business_kid, there are lots of variables.
You've been here four years now, and should be able to do basic research of your own....as stated in the "Question Guidelines" link. Further, it seems like you're asking US on how to do your job for YOUR CLIENT...who is paying YOU. If you're not able to do the job (or even show effort in researching things), then asking us to do your work for you, FOR FREE, is fairly rude.
