Today we would like to introduce to you a new one-inch hard disk drive from Seagate supporting CompactFlash interface. Based on the regular HDD architecture (featuring platters and heads), this product proved very fast, very reliable and robust against external physical vibrations and shock. And the most important is that it offers outstanding storage capacity at a very affordable price.
Performance in AIDA32
With the help of a special option in AIDA32 program we managed to draw linear read and linear write graphs, as well as measure the average access time.
Linear Read Speed
Linear Write Speed
Average Access Time
The screenshots above indicate that the average access time of Seagate ST1 5GB HDD is 25msec, and the measured read and write speeds appeared about the same: both graphs look very similar, actually. We can now state that read speed results appeared very similar to those obtained during FC-Test, which once again proves our conclusions to be true. However, the just obtained write speed results appeared much higher than what the FC-Test had revealed. Here we see exactly the difference between synthetic benchmarks and those measuring real performance of the tested solution.
