AGN Hardware heeft een review van de super vette Seagate Cheetah 18LP schijf geupt. Hij is errug snel:..
The results speak for themselves: the Seagate Cheetah 18LP is simply the fastest drive ON THE PLANET! In WInbench 99 testing, we found that the 3rd gen Cheetah offered between 4-6% performance increases in the overall disk scores. There were a few indivdual; tests that clearly made use of the larger Cache on the Mako, but this was still not enough to outperform the Cheetah 18LP overall. In our hands, we found the 18LP to be as much as 13.7% faster than the Mako IBM drive in SiSoft Sandra 98 testing. Yes folks, this 3rd generation Cheetah is almost 14% faster than a 2nd gen. drive with 4 times the Cache. Sandra showed that the Cheetah outpaced the Mako in all tests except the Sequential write test, where the larger Cache on the Mako help to keep the drive on task with the Cheetah.
