Firstly, I suggest that you skip the per-char tests when graphing such 
things, it's generally not very interesting and just clutters the graph.

Next the seeks, block-io, and create/delete test results belong on different 
graphs because the Y axis measures different things, and because it needs 
different scales.

Finally what graphing program did you use?

Why are you so certain that it's the FC interface at fault?  The FC interface 
should be able to do more than 60MB/s.
