This drive is tested with fresh installed Windows 7 64bit Home Premium with AHCI enabled.
4k runs with 32bit Que depth have always been much lower on mechanical drives than on SSDs. Keeping the HyperX aside, Western Digital Scorpio Blue pretty much follows WD Black 750GB.
HD Tune Benchmark
8MB ATTO Benchmark
Yeah, its not fair for the HyperX SSD to stick its nose in the middle, but you can see all the drives are pretty much on the same level between 0.5MB-to-5MB read and Writes. Lets also not forget this 5400RPM drive is exchanging blows with 7200RPM drive.
