Western Digital VelociRaptors Vs. Solid State Drives
We recently reviewed both the latest Western Digital VelociRaptor and the Intel 520 Series Solid State Drive, and it got us thinking about a direct comparison. Both drives may be fundamentally different in the way they work but they actually target the same market - the hardware performance enthusiast!
With graphics cards and processors so powerful these days and DDR3 SDRAM so cheap, the only thing holding back a system is often the storage subsystem. Hence, there is an increase emphasis on the performance of the hard disk drive, or its rival, the solid state drive.
Many have said that the days of the hard disk drive is waning, and the age of the solid state drive has begun. But is the hard disk drive really on the way out? That is what this small comparison is about.
