Solved Which hard drive is faster? (5400rpm SSHD vs 7200 rpm SSHD) Tags: Cache Storage Hard Drives Seagate Last response: December 15, 2013 3:05 PM in Storage Share crazekid362 December 15, 2013 2:44:03 PM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... OR http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... One is 7200 RPM with 32mb cache and the other 5400RPM but 64mb cache. I believe the "slower" 5400 RPM is actually the newer seagate generation of hybrid drives and is being touted as faster. But I'm not sure. Thanks.

Reply to siddharthmukul007 Share leeb2013 a b G Storage December 15, 2013 2:54:21 PM I saw a review recently that showed anything over 16MB cache on a HDD gave no advantage. I would go with a 7200rpm drive.

I also forgot to mention the XT has 4gb nand flash while the other has 8gb. Would the greater amount of flash be better off in the long run for my needs?
