So check this out, on my DFi board i just ran benchmarks through the NVIDIA nForce3 250 built in IDE benchmarking .. thing. What surprises me is the burst times, it seems the bigger the drive the slower they get, but the faster the sustained speed gets. Code: burst sustained interface capacity maxtor 107 50 ata133 80GB seagate 84 52 ata100 160GB western digital 70 57 sata150 200GB MB/sec All with 8MB cache. Is this just a coincidence? Should i be concerned with the low burst speed of this WD 200GB Sata drive?
