And in conclusion we will look at Visual C++ test, which clearly indicated: Barracuda 7200.7 SerialATA is a little faster than Barracuda 7200.7 Plus. At the same time, these two hard drives outperformed their counterparts with smaller cache-buffer by about 12%. The previous generation hard disk drives are again in the very end of this race.

Now let’s pass over to the tests in a more advanced file system: NTFS.

In NTFS the results of High-End WinMark appeared even more systematic, and SerialATA HDDs managed to surpass their ATA fellows. I would like ton especially praise the previous Barracuda model, which managed not only to improve its performance in all applications, but also to win in two of them: Business WinMark and FrontPage.

Here the indisputable victory belongs to SerialATA. Judging by the closeness of all SerialATA HDDs results, I dare assume that they owe this victory to the controller. Anyway, only the models with 2MB buffer appeared slower here.

Another victory of SerialATA drives.
