Performance in Intel IOMeter WorkStation Pattern
This pattern has a big share of write requests, and this condition should bring some changes into the rankings.
Well, the test is different, but the leaders are the same – the 200GB Hitachi HDS722525VLAT80 and the Seagate ST3200822AS. The WD200PB and WD200BB drives from Western Digital took the third and fourth places, ousting the Hitachi HDS722525VLAT80 to the fifth. The Maxtor 5A300j) is the slowest device, again.
Now we reduce the storage space of the drives to 32GB and repeat the test.

The 200GB Hitachi HDS722525VLAT80 keeps its leading position, but the “full-size” HDS722525VLAT80 is very close behind. The WD2500JB is on the podium, too.
This is the end of synthetic IOMeter tests – we can proceed to WinBench now.
