Seagate FireCuda Gaming Hard Drive RGB 2TB

The PCMark 10 Data Drive Benchmark has been designed to test drives that are used for storing files rather than applications. You can also use this test with NAS drives, USB sticks, memory cards, and other external storage devices.
The Data Drive Benchmark uses 3 traces, running 3 passes with each trace.

Trace 1. Copying 339 JPEG files, 2.37 GB in total, in to the target drive (write test).
Trace 2. Making a copy of the JPEG files (read-write test).
Trace 3. Copying the JPEG files to another drive (read test)

Here we show the total bandwidth performance for each of the individual traces.


The PCMark 10 Data Drive benchmark figures are what you would expect to see from a 5,400rpm drive, with a best of 76MB/s in the write test.
