How We Tested

During our tests we used the configuration listed below and the only variable component between each benchmarking session was the hard disk drive being tested.

Hardware Configuration

Software Configuration

  • Windows XP Professional using NTFS file system
  • Service Pack 3
  • Intel Inf driver version: 9.0.0.1008
  • NVIDIA video driver version: 175.19

Benchmarking Software

We adopted a 3% error margin. So, performance differences below 3% cannot be considered meaningful. In other words, products where the performance difference is below 3% must be considered as having similar performance.
