The big mean fish - Seagate Barracuda 7200.8 HDD - Benchmarks - SiSoft Sandra

Seagate has just launched their brand new Barracuda 7200.8 hard disk drive for the consumer desktop market which promises to offer blazing fast performance. In this review of the new drive we compare the new 7200.8 against the older generation Barracuda 7200.7 as well as the Western Digital Raptor. In the wild you wouldn't expect a Raptor to be scared of a Barracuda but the food chain just might have made a bit of a change in favour of the big mean tropical fish.

Under SiSoft Sandra hard drive benchmark we see the Seagate drives providing better performance than the Raptor again with the older version of the Barracuda a good way behind.
