When it comes to Workstation
performance as measured by Intel's IOMeter
, the Fujitsu MAJ shines. Even in a linear load
(where access time's role is greatest), the MAJ manages to edge out the Quantum Atlas 10k II
by a margin of 3%. This gap only increases as the load gets heavier... all the way up to nearly 17% under a heavy load
. Quite a significant difference in a significant benchmark!
The MAJ's IOMeter Workstation performance is so good, in fact, that it manages to edge out the IBM Ultrastar 36LZX in most loads to lay its claim as the fastest 10k RPM drive around for workstation usage. Not bad at all.
