Performance in WinBench99 (NTFS)
I wonder if the same situation will repeat in NTFS file system:
Hm, on the one hand we see the same tendency here, but on the other, it is not quite the same…
It turned out that the performance of the first three hard disk drives is almost the same in a 32GB partition and in the 250GB partition. The Western Digital drives, however, do have very different performance results.
Just like in FAT32 the first prize belonged to Hitachi HDD, and the second and third one were taken by two Maxtor drives having made up for the failure in FAT32 benchmarks this way.
In High-End tests Maxtor drives are simply beyond any competition, especially the model supporting Parallel ATA interface. The third one is Hitachi, while WD HDDs are the slowest of all. In fact, it is really hard to say why they turned out so slow in NTFS…
Before we pass over to the FC-test results discussion, I would like to offer you the linear read speed graphs, which you might consider interesting to check out:
- Hitachi 7K250 (Graph);
- Maxtor MaxLine Plus II 7Y250P0 (Graph);
- Maxtor MaxLine Plus II 7Y250M0 (Graph);
- WD 2500JB (Graph);
- WD 2500JD (Graph).
