My dad asked me a question it wasIf you have a 80gig hard drive 7200rpm and 8mb cache would that be faster than a 500gig hard drive 7200rpm and 8mb cacheHe said that the head would not have to seek as long one a smaller hard driveI dont think it is right what do you think
It depends on how the files are stored and in what sections and the state of fragmentation but like the number of angels that can fit on the head of a pin, you would never notice the difference in real life.G
In my experience the cache size is what makes the real difference. Rpm and size don't seem to matter all that much.
But as GANDALF <|:-)> says, you can't really tell with normal usage and have to run diagnostic software to find out.
I am thinking of getting a western d raptor 36gig 1000rpm 8 mb cache i think this is the fastes drive avalibale
you need to bear in mind that unless you have special benchmarking software and timing equipment you'll hardly notice the difference between one drive and another.As has already been pointed out, a lot depends on the way your files are stored on the drive, and I really don't think it's worth getting too excited about the drive-speed.
