HD Tune Pro
First of all let’s check out the results obtained in HD Tune Pro 3.00 benchmark that draws very neat linear read and access time graphs.
Here they are, the phenomenal results! The average read speed is 103.9MB/s, which is 40% faster than the previous generation Raptor did. However, from a global standpoint, it is no record: there are SATA drives out there that can boast very similar liner read speed. However, when it comes to access time, VelociRaptor is beyond any competition – 7ms! No other SATA hard drive can get even close to the newcomer. Even the old Raptor drive could only boast 8.5ms access time in this test. In other words, VelociRaptor is a remarkable evolutionary leap forward in the high-performance HDD family from Western Digital.

I don’t think you need my comments here. RAID 0 built of two today’s fastest SATA hard drives amazes us with its performance demonstrating around 200MB/s data transfer rate at minimal access time.
