HD Speed results thread

Tx to bosw8er for the idea..
In this thread we take the program HD Speed (direct link here ) from Steelbytes

Open the exe (13 kB), run default test (read)
In the drive combobox, u can choose your driver or partition (partition is just the c: for example, the drive is at the bottom, called \\PHYSICALDRIVEX (X starting at 0)

Here are my results:

Drive 1: IBM Deskstar 40 gb ATA100 7200 rpm: Average of 46 MB/S

Drive 2: Maxtor 40gb ATA100 7200 rpm: Average of 36 MB/S

Drive 3: Old Western Digital 10gb ATA33 5400 rpm: Average of 13 MB/S

Quite interesting to see the IBM disk being faster than the Maxtor..

MSI K7T - Amd1800 - 512mb RAM

hoe lang laat je die test lopen?

Seagate Barracuba 28gb ATA66 5400RPM = 22 Mb/s

Maxtor 40gb ATA100 7200 rpm = 37,8 MB/S

I don't think it's an accurate benchmark.

The scores for the raid 0 array are almost equal to the backup disk (20 GB - 5400 rpm) .. around 36 to 38000, whereas there is a clear difference in HDtach and Sandra.

PII 350 Mhz - 320 Mb SDRAM

Maxtor DiamondMax 60 ATA100 (although it could be that this motherboard only handles up to ATA66): 15.8 Mb/sec

New PC is on it's way, it should be here in 3-5 days .
3 Ghz here i come (and +- 40 Mb/sec too off course ).
