Sata Writes Faster Than Reads?


Recommended Posts

If you've got the Seagate with 8mb cache, then it could explain faster writes with lower "total length" of 4mb... @32mb it's 4x the cache so... (and Windows has it's own caching of course, but the bench probably designed to bypass windows caching for true results) But also as mentioned fragmentation on disk along with how much empty space you've got will effect... with tons of empty space new file writes are almost garanteed to be sequential. But I'm no hd expert, just spif balling.
