Maybe soem of the boig brians out there can help me figure this out. Why is the WD 10K drive so slow as hte PS scratch diks? I don ot mean to imply that is absolutely slow, but the 15K.3 at least as much faster as a typical IDe drive (DM+9, WD250JB, etc.) is slower. The revelant system info is as follows.
P4 3.2MHz w/2GB PC3200 ECC on ASUA p4C800E-Deluxe, Win2K.
I tried the 10K WD ddrive on the southbrodge port, on the onbroad Promise RAID controller and also on a separte PCi cadr (also Promise). Sadly, esults are anbout the same no matter which is utilized. Low level test results of the 10K drive are typcal in transfer rate, access times and PCU ulization compared t the SR reviews.
Any ideas, theoretcial or practicakl would be very much appreciated.
