Legacy Tests

For those readers still interested, the above graphs outline the Fireball Plus LM's performance in our original testbed. The Business and High-End Disk WinMark scores for the Quantum fall right in line with those turned in by Maxtor's unit, the disparity in both cases less than 2%.

In NT 4.0, the Plus 40 pulls away, with the LM clocking in with #'s about 10% less. It's interesting to note that while the Business Disk WinMark result is relatively the same between NT with the Old Testbed and Win2k with the New System, the margins are rather different in the High-End. Win2k with a 700 MHz processor turns out similar High-End scores for both the Maxtor and Quantum. NT4 with a 266 MHz processor, however, does not. Though some may attribute the disparity to differences in the OS, it may also indicate that WinBench99 scores don't always scale proportionately between drive models as processor speed increases.
