The big mean fish - Seagate Barracuda 7200.8 HDD - Benchmarks - PCMark04

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.

PCMark is a multipurpose benchmark, suited for benchmarking all kinds of PCs, from laptops to workstations, as well as across multiple Windows operating systems. This easy-to-use benchmark makes professional strength benchmarking software available even to novice users. PCMark consists of a series of tests that represent common tasks in home and office programs. PCMark also covers many additional areas outside the scope of other MadOnion.com benchmarks.

 

 

PCMark04 considers the Raptor the clear winner but the rest of our benchmarks wouldn't suggest it is as better as PCMark makes it out to be.
