EDIT: There it is! Can you test with HDtune? Because with those results I have to do the math to find averages lol.

in all honesty, ssds should be elimated from this forum scores. most ssds will outperform a hdd any day and the title of this forum may i remind you is "post your hdd speeds". also i just wanna be in foruth place lol.

My old, but faithful P4-Northwood running PATA HDD



But speeded up quite some years ago with iRAM vHDD. This is where my temps and pagefile sits. It gives quite a speed boost. Keep in mind this is already a 6 year old solution, so SSD's have caught up completely. But not bad for 2005. As you can see it is constrained by SATA1



I think the ATTO results for the small transfer size blocks might be constrained by my Pentium 4 Northwood...

Well true but I think we should just have a separate table for SSD's and HDD's (Maybe: single SSD, SSD in RAID, single HDD, HDD in RAID...).

But anyway here are my results:

Hitachi Ultrastar 15K450 SAS
(4 platters 8 heads, 16MB cache, 3.5'' 450GB 15000RPM)

(Read/write cache is disabled on the controller)


How about making a list of lowest access times for HDD's :D

3 x Seagate Savvio 10k.2 SAS in RAID0
(2 platters 4 heads, 16MB cache, 2.5'' 146GB each, 10000RPM)




Toshiba MBD2147RC SAS-2 (6Gb/s)
(1 platter 2 heads, 16MB cache,2.5'' 146GB 10000RPM)




I took the following test to show that if caching is enabled ATTO results can be affected, I didn't notice HDTune being affected by cache (only the burst speeds are affected) .

hugely agree, i was thinking early today that someone in techpowerup.com should make a forum specifically designed for benchmarking ssds. thank you! id gladly par take in that.

Wonderful idea. Sort of had this idea myself while updating the list.

Will apply this update now!

UPDATE APPLIED!

List is now in order of fastest to slowest, as it was, but is now split into 4 different sections! SSD's, SSD's in RAID, HDD's, HDD's in RAID! :)

No it was the only program running and I made sure the HDD was idle when I run the test, God knows why those huge dips :confused: I think because I was running on battery I will retest tomorrow again plugged it in :)


EDIT: I tried plugged it and same, must be some of the Samsung drivers or software used to improve battery life or something :)

You make me want to buy SSD's and raid them. :(

I think I really need to get an SSD anyway. Just for like, booting. You know like a lot of people do.

Use it for booting and shit like that and then my 1TB HDD for everything else.

HDD TESTERS: If you could also use HDtune that would be great. With the results from bench32 I have to sit and find your averages. This is not a MUST, just appreciated.

tested my ocz vertex 3 120gb ssd, not impressed with the write speeds but im happy with the read speeds. anyone know how to optimize the write speeds??? should i not use the marvel adapter for the mobo, because thats what im using? ive heard marvell really isnt that great. according to this i should be getting faster read speeds as well http://www.legitreviews.com/article/1624/5/
