Seagate Momentus 7200.1: ST910021AS
The Momentus 7200.1 is obviously no match to the Hitachi 7K200. We include it only for the sake of comparison because it is a contemporary of the Hitachi 7K100 series and has appropriate recording density. We are still looking forward to testing the next 2.5” series with a spindle rotation speed of 7200rpm – Momentus 7200.2.
Testbed and Methods
The following testing utilities were used:
- IOMeter 2003.02.15
- WinBench 99 2.0
- FC-Test 1.0
- Albatron PX865PE Pro II mainboard
- Intel Pentium 4 2.4GHz CPU
- IBM DTLA-307015 system disk, 15GB
- Radeon 7000 32MB graphics card
- 256MB DDR2-533 SDRAM
- Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP2
We installed the generic OS drivers for the drives and formatted them in FAT32 and NTFS as one partition with the default cluster size. For some tests 32GB partitions were created on the drives and formatted in FAT32 and NTFS with the default cluster size, too. The SATA interface was provided by a Promise SATA300 TX4302 controller.
