Seagate 750 GB Barracuda Enters The Big League

Application Performance

With PCMark05 as the indicator of hard drive performance, all three test quite low in comparison to other drives on the market. The Seagate is the victor with a throughput of 8.1 MB/s in our startup test.

The Seagate is the clear winner here with a large lead in MB/s as tested under PC/Mark 05. These results would seem to confirm the earlier h2benchw 3.6 results that actual data transfer rates are quite speedy for such large drives, surpassed only by the Raptor WD1500AD.
