Tom's take on TCQ/NCQ

Recommended Posts

Huh, wrong benchmarks on the wrong drives with the wrong settings. Exactly what I have come to expect from THG WRT storage.

It is weird that they used a raptor 36GB and 74GB drives. Why didn't they just test the 74GB raptor with TCQ disabled? And why use different drives to test NCQ enabled versus NCQ disabled? Why not test the same drive with it enabled and then disabled? This would remove any sample variation affecting the outcome of the results.

I understand the wrong benchmarks argument (based on SR recommendations on which sw to use for testing).

Why did they test "wrong drives" with "wrong settings"? Can you explain.

I'm of course not saying they didn't, I just can't decipher "why" on my own :)

Thanks!

WillRickards' comments basically explained what I meant by that.
