How We Tested
Hardware Secrets Silver Award

We tested the Seagate Desktop SSHD using HD Tune Pro, CrystalDiskMark, and PCMark 8 programs. In order to determine the performance gain of the portrayed drive, we also ran the tests on a conventional hard disk drive, a Seagate Barracuda 2 TB, model ST2000DM001, with 7200 rpm and 64 MiB cache. They are pretty much the same hard drive, with similar mechanic parts, the only difference being the SSD part of the portrayed drive.

The drives were connected, one at a time, to an internal SATA-600 port. The only variable component between each benchmarking session was the HDD being tested.

Hardware Configuration

  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K
  • Motherboard: ASRock Z87 Killer
  • Memory: 16 GB G.Skill Sniper (DDR3-1600/PC3-12800), configured at 1,600 MHz
  • Video Card: GeForce GT 630 1 GB
  • Video Resolution: 1920 x 1080
  • Video Monitor: Philips 236VL
  • Power Supply: Corsair CX500M
  • Boot Drive: Kingston HyperX 3K 480 GB

Operating System Configuration                      

  • Operating System: Windows 7 Home Basic 64-bit using NTFS file system

Benchmarking Software

Error Margin

We adopted a 3% error margin in our tests, meaning performance differences of less than 3% cannot be considered meaningful. Therefore, when the performance difference between two products is less than 3%, we consider them to have similar performance.
