Now down to the nitty gritty we must go, when 2 or 3MB/s makes all the difference. (I’m talking about benchmarks). Today for your viewing pleasure I will be using SiSoft Sandra 2007 and HD Tach v3.0.1.0.

The first test I ran was HD Tach. It is expected that the new SATA drive will obliterate my older IDE drive that is being used for comparison.

The test was ran twice for consistency.

Very consistent results, within 1MB/s. Not far out of spec either for SATAI. Next I ran the same test on a 120GB ATA100 IDE drive.

Overall, an average read speed of 90MB/s. Pretty good considering that this is a Seagate 7200.7 120GB ATA100 hard drive. The SATA drive (as expected) completely obliterated the older ATA100 drive, beating it consistently by 41%.
