Despite the small differences in low-level marks, the gain posted by the Cheetah 18XL over the 36LP in WinBench 99's Business Disk WinMark is substantial. The smaller drive cruises by its larger brother by a margin of 14%. The difference in the High-End test shrinks somewhat, however. Here the 18XL comes out on top by 7%.

In such a comparison, the 18XL falls behind the Atlas by margins of 15% and 25% respectively in the Business and High-End Disk WinMarks.
