So I recently got a 10,000rpm 16mb cache, 300gb WD Velociraptor HD. I was concerned with it only have 16mb of cache, and now I'm seeing newer Hard Disks that have 64mb of cache @ 7200rpm. Does anyone know how close in performance these two would be? How much of a difference does more cache make?
You should read the article on the new velociraptor that tom's has up right now. It has your drive as well as they new ones that they just came out with, and basically backs up what sminlal said.
