Storage Focused Gaming Benchmarks

With an operating system installed directly on the test hard drive along with PCMark Vantage, we see how storage speed can affect overall system performance numbers. With the faster 10K RPM/15K hard drives, our PCMark Vantage numbers trend upward, with the X15.6 delivering the fastest numbers of the lot.

In terms of gaming performance, the Cheetah X15.6 drives don't really deliver anything significant over a modern 10K RPM hard drive. In terms of our game install and level load times, the X15.6 drive doesn't perform substantially better compared to lower cost alternatives, which leads us to recommend a much less expensive 10K RPM hard drive if you're interested in price/performance for gaming.
