Performance in WinBench99
The results obtained in WinBench99 caused us a lot of troubles this time, because in some cases we got a really big discrepancy. Here you go:
However, we still managed to get a clear picture of the 180GXP HDDs performance by repeating the tests multiple times:
In general, the situation in both file systems looks as follows:
- 120GXP doesn’t look like an outsider compared with 180GXP. On the contrary, the results of both 120GB models are too similar.
- The rating of the HDD in this test mostly depends on its storage capacity. However, we have long known about WinBench favoring hard drives with large storage capacity.
- The performance difference between the largest and the smallest HDD (in case their buffer is of the same size) is a little below 10%.
- Larger buffer ensures a 13% performance growth in FAT32 and 8% performance growth in NTFS.
