Speed on the Cheap: Seagate Momentus XT RAID 0 - Speed on the Cheap: Seagate Momentus XT RAID 0
Thu, Feb 10 2011 | 2:25PM | Filed under: Hard Drives| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

Now we are going to take it a little further with the Seagate Momentus XT Hybrid drive. This little guy is a standard 2.5" 7200 RPM laptop drive with 32MB cache and a beautiful 4GB SSD attached. This SSD brings the performance up considerably. So, what are we going to do with it? Well Seagate gave us two, so we are going to RAID them in a RAID 0 and short stroke them to see what kind of performance we can get. Just like Artiom did with the VelociRaptor. We are directly comparing this to the SSD in Artiom's last editorial using the VelociRaptors.

Slow computer got you down? Maybe a hardware upgrade should be in your cards, if so this guide to the Fundamentals of Upgrading a PC is an invaluable read. PCSTATS Tips
