I like to use rsync with --progress so it shows realtime
updates on the status of the copy when testing performance
like that.

But I agree that the file system likely will not have a
noticeable overhead with regards to copy performance on
single 8GB files, now 10,000 files that take up 8GB of
space I can see a file system having a performance impact.
