  1. Greetings! This thread? There is also some benchmark of the new 80GB Raptor:
  2. Greetings! WD just announced the enterprise version with a surprise, 3ms latency instead of the 5,5ms previously reported. The enterprise version is the BLFS, the enthusiast version is the GLFS. And there will be a 150GB BLFS version.
  3. Greetings! BLFS for engineering sample and GLFS for the final product?
  4. Greetings! WD site shows the model number as WD3000GLFS, not WD3000BLFS.
  5. Greetings! Impressive results! Even more considering its not fully optimized yet. Any idea if a 150GB version will be available? And, how long for the solid state comparison?
  6. Greetings! You are using a 32bit OS.You need a 64bit OS for the full 4GB.
  7. Greetings! You do get a nice window.

    Drive indexing

    Greetings! Reading the AnandTechs thread, your system clearly have a problem with SuperFetch. Other systems might not have.

    Drive indexing

    Greetings! Its explained here: It makes Vista feels snappier. That definately shouldnt be disabled. If you dont have much RAM, you can use a flash USB to enable ReadyBoost:

    RAID 0 Game level loading

    Greetings! I think the performance comes from the CPU, not the AID-0.

    THG reviews Raid-0 vs Raptor

    Greetings! Regarding Item 2: ... IOMeter measures random access performance across varying loads and simulated nodes (network performance). In otherwords, while it remains quite suited to assessing multi-user performance, it has little capability to tackle single-user scenarios. So, RAID-0 wins in single user scenarios?
  14. Greetings! Here: From the conclusion: The conclusion for our reissued battle between the current 150 GB WD Raptor and the pair of 400 GB WD4000KD hard drives in RAID 0 is surprising. Although the WD Raptor clearly remains the fastest Serial ATA desktop hard drive, the RAID 0 array beats it in most benchmarks except access time and I/O performance. The cost per gigabyte ratio of the Raptor is particularly questionable, as you can get three times the storage capacity for half the money today, which has mainstream drives beating the Raptor by a factor of six. Enthusiasts willing to accept the higher risk of data loss in RAID 0 should carefully consider a RAID array consisting of two cheap 7,200 RPM drives over the WD Raptor.
