Then I was told about these Seagate Firecuda drives, and looked into them, the 2TB model was pretty cheap..... suspiciously so. I looked into them and noticed that they for some crazy reason were 5400RPM.
I looked at mechanical 2TB drives, but noticed that all of them are 5400RPM, the 7200RPM models only exist in enterprise-level drives that cost more than a SSD would, so that is out of the question.
So going back the 1TB drives, plenty of them exist in the 2.5 form factor at 7200RPM, but again, the Firecuda 1TB drives seemed to be 5400RPM....
Are there any 7200RPM models of the 1TB Firecudas? Several sites seem to list them as being 7200RPM, but Seagate themselves seem to purposely hide that spec (which makes it seem very suspiciously likely that they are 5400) and several people have insisted that they are just simply 5400.
Which would even perform better in this instance then if I am using it exclusively for gaming, a 5400RPM SSHD, or a 7200RPM HDD? They are about the same price anyway.
