Unlike access, PostgreSQL (and any other SQL-DB) flushes all writes directly to disk.
That makes SQL databases quite safe against power failures.
To improve performance database servers need fast hard drives.

If you are just creating a new table switching off fscnc() might speed up things considerably.
For normal (save) operation you should switch it on again.
When I create my database with several tables (with 20.000+ rows), I switch it off.

With fsync() off (backend option) you might get results less than 30 sec.

So it's not the driver.

Hope that helps,
