Best benchmark to compare HDD for gaming Tags: Hard Drives Gaming Benchmark Storage Last response: August 11, 2009 7:11 PM in Storage Share skora August 11, 2009 4:26:23 AM I searched, and its just a mess of results, not relevant specifically to the HDD. But if I'm looking at the charts comparing HDDs for gaming, which specs should I be focused on to get the best performance?

Get the answer skora August 11, 2009 7:11:00 PM Thanks for the responses. As 90% of the benchmarks end with /second, that doesn't help a lot. For throughput, should I look for max, min, or avg? Again, this is to judge the best HDD for gaming. Is it dfferent for rendering/editing machines? So the IOMeter benchmarks don't have any use for what I'm looking for? And is the PCVantage Gaming benchmark worth using? m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources SolvedSSD vs HDD Linux performance compared - minimal advantage at best?
