Hard Drive Speeds
OK, I am sure that many of you know the Windows Experience Index that ships with Vista and Windows 7?
A conventional electro-mechanical 7,200rpm HDD will score 5.9. That is also true for Windows 8.
I just got two Seagate Barracudas (made in China......that's new) and loaded Win8 Release Preview onto one of them...............I got a WEI of 7.45!!!
I checked both of them (on different machines) with HD Tune v2.55 and got these readings in Megabytes/sec:
That's around twice the speed of any other HDD I have, and some are no more than 9 months old. Those values are for the whole 1000GB.....these are not hybrid drives.
Something has happened
So watch out for the bargains as they try to offload old stock!
