Data Transfer Diagram

Access Time

An average access time of 15.1 ms isn’t quite a new record, but the 3.5" mainstream delivers 13-14 ms, which means that the difference is not unacceptable considering the power savings of the WD Caviar GP.

Interface Performance

Interface throughput isn’t really important for everyday performance, so it’s a result that we include to measure the maximum throughput, which typically represents the performance when reading from the drive’s cache memory.
