Storage Review heeft de 10.000rpm Seagate Cheetah 18LP
gereviewed. De performance van het ding kickt ass, voormalig 10.000rpm kampioen IBM Ultrastar 18ZX wordt keihard weggeblowt:
The current reigning StorageReview.com 10k rpm champion in is the IBM Ultrastar 18ZX. Though the IBM drive features a hefty 4 megabyte buffer, the Cheetah 18LP features higher areal density and a resulting higher transfer rate. Even in the absence of concrete figures, I'd put my money on the higher transfer rate. As it turns out, the Cheetah 18LP does indeed oust the Ultrastar 18ZX to earn the title of the "fastest drive ever tested at StorageReview.com." In the Business Disk WinMark test run in Windows 95, the Cheetah outperforms the Ultrastar by a margin of 6%. High-End Disk WinMark tests show the Seagate triumphing over the IBM by a more substantial 11%. Tests under Windows NT 4.0 show the margins narrowing to 5% and 8% on the Business and High-End tests respectively.
