Performance Question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
How much a performance increase would I get from two 5400 rpm 8mb cache hard drives in raid 0 to two 7200 rpm 16mb cache hard drives in raid 0?

Your expertise is always appreciated.

not sure about the percentage but the higher increase (obviously) would be from a RAID 0 config of the two 7200 rpm drives. as for the increase you probably would not notice the diff unless you ran benchmarks on the disk i/o. just my $0.02.

Just a guess too, but he is probably right. you would have to get a accurate stop watch to tell the difference really. I wouldnt worry about it unless you move 10Gb files all the time.

you will have slightly faster boot time and your file transfers will be a little faster if you are working with very large files. I dont think it is worth it unless you need bigger drives.

The difference between an old 5400RPM drive and a new 7200RPM drive would be noticable. Faster windows load times, faster application opening, faster file loading, pretty much anything that interacts with your hard drive would be faster. As far as how much faster, who knows.

yes, would be noticeable but youd probably have to benchmark to see the real diff.
