Figures for WD's 320 GB Scorpio

Performance numbers for WD's latest mobile drive, the 320 GB Scorpio WD3200BEVT, have been placed in the Performance Database.

Overall, the drive delivers an across the board performance gain over its 250-gig predecessor while weighing in just a hair noisier when it comes to idle operation.

Nonetheless, WD's latest closes the gap between the firm's offerings and Hitachi's king-of-the-hill Travelstar 7K200.

The WD3200BEVT also delivers some of the highest scores we've seen from a 2.5" notebook-oriented drives in our IOMeter suite, indicating suitability for light use in multi-user environments.
