The Seagate Savvio 10K.3 has a higher maximum STR speed than the VelociRaptor, but when it comes to the average both drives are nearly identical. The problem is the VelociRaptor is able to transfer data faster at the end of the stroke where hard drives are slower to their worst performance.
The write speed tests are almost identical with the Seagate Savvio 10K.3 doing well at the start but finishing poorly. Once again the VelociRaptor hits nearly identical at the average mark.
