The 73LP's score of 8.8 MB/sec in the Business Disk WinMark 99 is enough to edge out Quantum's Atlas 10k II
, the longtime champion, by a margin of less than 1%. The Seagate similarly bests the Quantum in the High-End WinMark by a more substantial gap of 7%. We should take a moment to note that "besting the Atlas 10k II" also means "besting the Cheetah X15
" when it comes to WinMarks. According to WinBench 99
, the Cheetah 73LP is the fastest thing out there.
Does IOMeter concur?
