Caviar drives tend to excel in the WinBench 99
Disk WinMark tests... the WD1000BB is no exception. Its score of 8.7 MB/sec in the Business Disk WinMark 99 is the highest we've recorded to date, edging out the previous record of 8.6 MB/sec set by WD's own WD800BB
by a 1% margin. The 1000BB's High-End Disk WinMark 99 of 22.5 MB/sec is even more impressive, besting the previous record holder (IBM's Deskstar 60GXP
) by nearly 9%.
