AGN Hardware heeft een review gepost van de 10.000rpm IBM Ultrastar 9LXZ 'Mako' U2W scsi drive. Hoe doet de IBM schijf het in vergelijking met de Seagate Cheetah die eerder gereviewed werd door AGN HW?
The results pretty much speak for themselves: the Cheetah is faster on most tasks. This was to be expected, as the 3rd generation Cheetah has some new features that set it apart from 2nd generation drives. What does stick out about the Mako in these tests are the facts that the Mako out-performed the Cheetah in Microstation and SoundForge, two applications that require quite a bit of data transfer. It is here that you can see the advantage of the additional cache on the 9LZX.
