Seagate Momentus XT 750GB Hybrid Drive
CrystalDiskMark is a synthetic benchmark that tests both sequential and random small and mid-sized file transfers. It provides a quick look at best and worst case scenarios with regard to SSD performance, best case being larger sequential transfers and worse case being small, random transfers.
Like the ATTO benchmarks on the previous page, CrystalDiskMark DOES NOT benefit from Seagate's adaptive memory technology and characterizes only the performance of the Momentus XT's hard drive.
The numbers show the new Momentus XT 750GB drive offering about 10% better hard drive performance than the original Momentus XT. Intels' SRT technology, the standalone SSD, and the RevoHybrid once again offer better performance--as expected.
