    Metro.CL, the man behind ChileHardware, says that Seagate has a 10 000 RPM drive in the works. The HDD will compete with WD's Raptor drive, that has reigned as the highest performance SATA hard drive for enthusiasts for quite some time now.

    Seagate will bring healthy competition to the market, which will hopefully result in price drops of 10 000 RPM hard drives.

    There is no estimated time frame in which the HDD should debut.

    FINALLY, some competition for the Raptor. 2 years in and still selling at above 200$!

    If it results in pricedrops of 10K sata disks I might replace my SCSI drives in the future. 10K perpendicular for example could be pretty nice. Of course I'm assuming things like NCQ are supported, really helps.

    Most benchmarks show that NCQ is useless in non-server-enviroments and actually slow down a Desktop PC compared to non-NCQ HDDs.

    Copy several things at once and you will notice the difference, very much. Benchmarks usually don't let the disk do multiple things at once. I trust my own experience over benchmarks.

    I Agree with Dan. Harddrives at my job, you would think, would be on a server platform for the DAC system we use (takes pictures of defects on nickle and nickle cobalt electroformed shims) WE copy several 1.0+ GB files to another drive, DVD or a backup drive (that is rated at 10k) Still takes forever and a day to copy these files over.


    I cant wait to see these drives come out. Im hoping for a price drop as well as a capacity increase. It took forever and a day to go from the 36.7GB to 74GB and finally to the 150GB drives. (I know not forever but a damn long time) Something along the lines of a 200 or 300GB drive would be plenty

    If it's 10,000RPM perpendicular, I think the Raptor will be shot down quick. People say the 7200.10s are already faster.

    Not by a long shot.
    But there will be a very big threat from SSDs. Although not for a while.

    Yeah, I don't trust anything you say.

    My 7200.10 320GB is faster than the 8MB cache 74GB Raptor in sustained read/write. I have no idea how it stacks up against the newer 16MB 75GB or 150GB Raptors tho. I'd be interested to see.

    This thread is about 10K SATA disks from Seagate, not about someones signature. Please keep such pointless and off topic comments for general nonsense.

    I personally think Raptors are bullshit. Higher density drives actually have higher sustained read and writes, and despite the fact that this is undeniable people still will gag on the big meaty schlong of WD for the overpriced underperforming Rapetor.


    But hey, it takes all kinds.

    Being the opposite doesn't make you in the right. Tons of people love their Raptors, and I'm willing to bet it's with due cause.

    Then again sustained transfers aren't everything, try access times.

    I hope it makes less noise than the Raptor...

    My PC with a 400GB Sata Perp drive while working.


    [​IMG]


    Our server while on the network.



    The server is limited by the PCI bus. RAID 5 of three 320Gb discs. But still one Perpendictular drive runs almost as fast, and has 1ms better seek time.

    Rators are all about seek time!, they get like 7.8 ms iirc from benches, wich helps alot with small files and scattared file...

    Also that server you have is very limited it seems, I get 124 mb average read on my 2x 7200.10's in raid0.

    Regardless, 10k rpm is never about average tranfer rates, it's all about seek time...
