Results: Access Time And I/O Performance
It’s not surprising to see that the 7,200 RPM T166 has quicker access times. However, the difference is not significant if you use your high capacity drive for mass storage.
The I/O performance results are similar: the high capacity EcoGreen drives aren’t suitable for server or workstation workloads. For these types of applications, fast 10,000 RPM drives are a much better choice.
