Random read response time for the Desktop HDD had the drive in the top spot. At QD32 you can see the drive was much quicker than the rest of the test field.
Random write flips the table and the Seagate Desktop HDD becomes the slowest drive in the chart.
Moving over to sequential response times, the Desktop bounced back and reclaimed top honors.
In sequential write response, the 6TB Desktop showed similar results to sequential read. Here we have the drive as the quickest in the charts.
Our custom power testing samples each drive for a period of three minutes, across each workload. In order to offer more granularity, we sample the power in one-second intervals.
Power consumption for the 6TB Desktop HDD was right with the NAS and Surveillance drives through random read and write, but ramped up to near 9 watts during sequential write.
