Maybe people will tell you to RAID two smaller drives. But that:
1.) Takes up SATA and Drive space
2.) Isn't as stable.

I love my 300GB (2008) VelociRaptor, makes every program load instantly. (Except for like iTunes or GIMP)

To answer your question, probably twice as fast, judging by this graph. (Only the 1TB & 2TB versions are tested, just guessing)

Also, the VelociRaptor is one of the best in power efficiency, it has the load watts only about 5% higher then "green" drives, but has the idle of a "green" drive. And since the VelociRaptor is faster, it gets the job done faster and can go back to idle faster thus saving power.
