I also do not believe the Raptor is worth the money.
any chance you can post a HD tach of your wd5000aaks using the long bench?

I've been hearing good things about them and I was curious how they stack up against one of seagates 250gb drive.

Sorry to thread jack but I have basically the same question.

I am planning on getting 2 hard drives together in a RAID array and so I am wondering which will give me the better performance: 32mb of cache or 10,000rpm?

Specifically I am looking at the following two hard drives:

The 640Gb AAKS is using a 2 platter design. It is showing the most promising benches within the 7200 lineup.

Ok so the new AAKS is to compete with Samsungs new platter design, only three platters to acheive teh 1TB mark.

Yea, finally off work so I can do some research lol. I've been hearing good things about the new Samsung F1's.

And Vision, if raid is the way you want to go then 32MB cache and 7200 rpm drives are just fine for performance, can usually hit or beat the performance from the 10,000 rpm Raptors.



HHmmm, I may go with the Samsung F1 750GB, uses three platters with six heads like the 1TB still and for the price I get a bit more space, beats the WD6400AAKS in certain areas according to Anandtech.
But the WD AAKS does beat it out with a slightly quicker random seek time and a bit faster transfer rates for some apps.

I need to see if I can find any info about the WD AAKS, Eric has me curious about that now, I haven't heard about them so not too familar with them.
That's a nice price on that drive!

indeed....

raptor is really overpriced, old tech, slow transfer rate. the slightly faster seek time doesn't really justify by the price. The only reason they still selling is becaue other manufacture choose not to compete in that segment.

get the ST3500320as and you won't be disappointed.

Guess I'm going to jack this thread too...

I have two 320GB Seagates in RAID 0 in my old rig, but I don't feel like I have to do RAID 0 in my new rig. My big decision is between one 640GB AAKS WD, two 320GB 7200.11 Seagtes in RAID 0, or the 500GB 7200.11 Seagate. My priorities are speed first, and quiet second.
  1. 500GB Seagate 7200.11
  2. 640GB WD AAKS
  3. Two 320GB 7200.11 Seagate in RAID 0

Thanks in advance...

The Samsung Spinpoint F1 750GB is faster than a Raptor X at loading Crysis, and is over five times the size.

About 99% of the time, I will be playing games. For example, on my current rig, I have about 250GB of games installed. So now I am thinking about this configuration:

Two 250GB 32MB cache ES.2 Seagates in RAID 0 with the 640 AAKS WD as a backup drive.

Is that a good idea?
