Just look at the speed graphs mainly. Burst speed will be affected largely by the cache.

burst speeds go way up if the whole program can fit in the HD cache, or something like that...more cache gives way higher bursts, but it does nothing for performance

SATA vs SATA 2, for example...Raptors have high transfer speeds, but low bursts because of SATA's slower() interface...

just look at the transfer rates...a high avg rate is what you want, with no huge spikes on the charts
