Seagate Enterprise Capacity 6TB 3.5 HDD v4 Testing:
Crystal Disk Mark 3.0: Crystal Disk Mark is a hard drive benchmark designed to measure the read and write speeds of drives by using 4k blocks, 512k blocks, and sequential data. For the test, we chose the 1000MB option.
AS SSD v1.1.3466.29641: AS SSD is a benchmark specifically designed to test the speed of solid state drives. However, it also works for traditional hard drives. It is designed to measure the read and write speeds, as well as access times for set block sizes. It also assigns a score to the read, write, and overall performance of the drive.
Again we've got another SSD bench in here (there seem to be more SSDs populating to the market than HDDs) but it doesn't seem to make the 6TB from Seagate give up. The numbers seem a bit harsh, but compared to the others in the race it does quite well indeed.
