WB99/Win2k WinMarks

IBM's drive turns in impressive WinBench 99 scores when compared to the Quantum Fireball Plus LM, the Leaderboard champion at the time of this review. The Deskstar 75GXP's Business Disk WinMark 99 score weighs in at over 7600 KB/sec, besting the Quantum's score by a 14% margin.

The 75GXP's performance in the High-End Disk WinMark 99 (a measure chock-full of heavily STR-dependent applications) is even more impressive. Here we find the IBM falling just short of 20 MB/sec, a figure that places it ahead of the Fireball Plus LM by more than 20%.

As impressive as these figures are, however, they must be taken with the knowledge that WinBench 99's Disk Winmarks, by far the most popular measure of HD speed, are over a year and a half old. Thus, it's very important for drives to perform well in the more rigorous IOMeter. Let's see how the 75GXP fares.
