IOMeter Performance

[an error occurred while processing the directive]
IOMeter paints a much different picture than WinBench 99. Here, in Workstation usage, rather than folding to the Atlas 10k II, the X15 destroys it! Under a heavy load, the X15 cruises past the Atlas 10k by a margin of 33%. Figures under some lighter loads are even more impressive. Examine, for example, the difference between the two drives when it comes to light loads. In such cases we have the Seagate leading the Quantum by an amazing 45%! Similar margins apply to the two competitors in File Server scenarios- the X15 leads by large margins.

The comparison between the X15 and the IBM Deskstar 75GXP also pans out more along expected lines. In IOMeter, the Cheetah leads the Deskstar by margins up to a whopping 69% (see the Database for a comparison!). IOMeter certainly paints quite a different picture than WB99.
