Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000 Terabyte Hard Drive
HDTach is a free hard disk benchmarking program from SimpliSoftware. This benchmark is not only capable of producing results on hard disk access times but also CPU usage required during disk access. The "Long bench" was run a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest results being omitted and an average calculated from the remaining 3 results.
Straight away the differences between the two drives become very apparent, with the sequential read speed being considerably higher for the Hitachi DeskStar 7K1000. Almost 10MB/s higher in fact at the start of the test.
All bar the first chart show significant performance gains to the Hitachi DeskStar 7K1000 which is more than likely attributed to its increased buffer size. The Hitachi DeskStar 7K1000 also exhibits decreased latencies when compared to the Seagate Barracuda 80GB HDD
