Hey, so I just got in an 80GB velociraptor (yes, 80!). I've added a pic of it. I can't seem to find a whole lot about this drive online, but some say that it is even faster than the 300GB version. There is supposed to be a 74GB version as well (that isn't yet sold retail), so I wonder how they'd have a 74GB and an 80GB? This drive apparently came from Dell and here is a link that has some HDTach scores on it. I'm wondering if it will be worth it for me to upgrade from my Seagate 7200.10 320GB drive, or just sell this velociraptor (it is brand new and sealed, still)? My HDTach reports about 69.4 average read, 13ms random access time and around 220 burst rate. Does it seem worth it? Also, slightly off topic, I just installed the southbridge drivers for my AHCI sb600 controller from ATI's Catalyst 8.10 (8.11 nor 8.12 has them). Using the stock Vista drivers, my boot time is about 12 seconds shorter with this barracuda, but HDTach reads CPU usage of about 10%. With ATI's drivers, the boot up is slower (in fact, the moving bar on the vista load screen actually freezes for the 12 seconds), but I only have about 2% CPU usage in HDTach. Is this normal for those of you who have the SB600 running in AHCI mode with Vista (or in my case Server2008)?
