Seagate Enterprise Capacity 6TB 3.5 HDD v4 Testing:
PCMark 8 Storage test. This test is used to measure the performance of SSDs, HDDs, and even Hybrid solutions by running a set of traces through real world applications to determine drive performance. Each of the routines as well as the overall scoring and bandwidth tests are used for a performance comparison with higher results indicating superior peformance.
IOMeter is an I/O subsystem measurement and characterization tool for single and clustered systems. It was originally developed by the Intel Corporation and announced at the Intel Developers Forum (IDF) on February 17, 1998. Since then, it has seen widespread use within the industry.
The Seagate Enterprise Capacity 6TB drive is clearly slower than the SSDs in nearly every test but it doesn't suffer in comparison to the the other HDDs (which is what really counts). The scores are phenomenal and give a bit of respect to the added cost and capacity.
