PCMark 7 Storage Benchmarks
The WD Velociraptor 1TB led the pack in PCMark, with its 600GB counterpart trailing closely behind. The Velociraptor lines' relatively low access times and fast transfer speeds both play a role in the drives' leading performance here.
If we tunnel deeper into the PCMark results, we find that the WD Velociraptor 1TB led the pack in every one of the sub-tests. In terms of actual MB/s transferred, the numbers don't seem terribly impressive, but in term's of percentages, the WD Velociraptor 1TB is in roughly 10% - 25% faster than the other drives here, depending on the test.
