The VelociRaptor WD3000GLFS 300GB hard drive offers higher performance, both in terms of access times, IOPS, and sustained data transfer rates. Western Digital was also able to double the capacity and interface speed while keeping the noise levels and temperatures the same. Impressed? Make sure you’re sitting down!
The EMC CLARiiON CX-4G15-300 15,000 revolutions per minute (RPM) 300 GB hard disk drives dramatically increase performance through improvements in disk operations such as rotational latency and seek rates – the factors that most directly affect access times. The 300 GB 15k RPM hard disk drives deliver 3.5 ms average read seek times and 2.0 ms average rotational latency times – both the fastest available for drives of these capacities available on the market.
