SATA vs IDE

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Would using an IDE hard drive lower one's 3dMark score? I ran into trouble with my sata 160gig, bad grinding noises. Installed a 160 gig WD 8mg cache 7200 RPM ata 100 drive and my 3dmark03 score dropped by 2000

Yes it would. SATA drives have a signifagantly faster data transfer rate than IDE.

IDE = 100 or 133 Mb/sec. depending on drive and controller
SATA = 150 Mb/sec
SATAII = 300 Mb/sec

Well it really depends on what 3Dmark program, for 03, well, there are many factors that go into a 3Dmark score. HD being one, but i dont think this is the entire reason for a 2k point drop. An SATA HD might be a little faster with the connection, but most of these programs run off of the memory, not the HD. I would look for other causes like different graphics card drivers or fagmented HD.

IDE or SATA WILL NOT MATTER for the SAME drive.

Current hard drives (even raptors) will not completely saturate the ata 133 bandwidth yet. Sata II is useless because by the time we use that much bandwidth there is going to be another standard IMO. I like SATA only for the reason that the cables are thin and easy to deal with.

The reason you could get a difference is because the different drives. If you take my maxtor 300 gb hard drive with 16 mb cache, SATA connection and compared it to a ata 133 hard drive of the SAME type and model, it will be equal.

There has been great advances in hard drive speed, even from a year or two ago. So a older IDE drive will get spanked by a new SATA drive, but a new IDE drive will also spank it.

There is also the fact that perhaps one of your drives is faulty.
