IOMeter Performance

[an error occurred while processing the directive]

In all three of our IOMeter indices (normalized averages of Light, Medium, and Heavy loads in the respective access patterns) the Cheetah 73LP edges out the former respective champions to post the highest score of any 10k RPM drive. The Seagate's File Server index of 246.27 bests the Quantum Atlas 10k II by about 2%. The 73LP's Workstation index of 253.81 nudges out Seagate's own Cheetah 36XL by the tiniest of margins... 0.1%. Finally, the 73LP tops the Fujitsu MAJ3182LP by a similarly razor-thin 0.2%. Though all margins are extremely close, the fact that the 73LP brings together the best performance from three different drives into one package is testament to the performance of Seagate's latest.

Here too we should take a moment to note that while the 73LP tops all 10k RPM comers, it doesn't hold a candle to the performance turned in by the Cheetah X15. Seagate's screamer outraces its new workhorse by margins of up to 29%... quite a contrast from the differences exhibited above!
