Though most ATA drives still register significantly quieter than the Atlas, it nonetheless follows the laudable trend of reduced noise. Seagate was always first in delivering next-generation product. Seek noises are clearly audible, as one would expect from a SCSI drive that features blazing seek times. A host of improvements in protocol and error correction should elevate data integrity and device interoperability to new levels. The Atlas 10K V weighs in at Scores on top are better. Keep in mind that the current transfer rate champion, the Cheetah 15K.

Maxtor Atlas 10K V Capacities. It sets new records for measured transfer rates and maintains the speedy random access performance that has been a hallmark of the Atlas line. Multi-User Performance StorageReview uses mmaxtor following tests to assess server performance: Our only small caveat is the drive’s relatively high operating temperature; its likely, though, that any setup expecting a SCSI drive will be set up with good airflow.

According to filtered and analyzed data collected from participating StorageReview. Maxtor, Fujitsu, and Seagate eventually followed with their launches. We’ve been told to expect shipment into the channel before the close of the year. The figure typically represents the lowest sustained transfer rate a drive delivers. Single-User Performance StorageReview uses the following tests to assess non-server use: Heat and Noise Idle Noise – The sound pressure emitted from a drive measured at a distance of 18 millimeters.


In such a setup, any performance advantages that Ultra along with the requisite higher-bandwidth bit PCI slots would deliver over are negligible. For more information, please click here. Things are a bit different this year, however.

Low-Level Results For diagnostic purposes only, StorageReview measures the following low-level parameters: Introduction Density increases have atpas down tremendously.

Seagate was always first in delivering next-generation product. The competition trails here too, albiet by a narrower spread than that of the File Server test.

The figure typically represents the lowest sustained transfer rate a drive delivers.

Accounting for the average rotational latency of a 10, RPM drive 3 ms leads to a measured average seek time of 4. Low-Level Results For diagnostic purposes maxgor, StorageReview measures the following low-level parameters: Like the Cheetah 10K. Windows XP’s bootup process takes special steps to maxgor boot speed.

Unlike Seagate and Fujitsu, Maxtor sticks with a traditional ball bearing motor rather than the fluid dynamic bearing motors found on the Cheetah and MAP. The Atlas continues a trend of differentiating seek times between family members with varying platter counts. The 10K V muscles its way ahead of arlas competition in the SR High-End DriveMark, a suite that replicates the use of content-creation applications that create large files and hence features more sequential transfers and more write operations than the Office DriveMark.

A stunning nine months have passed since that initial announcement- the 10K is nowhere in sight! Transfer Rate Graphs in megabytes per second.

Maxtor Atlas 10K IV

SR’s Bootup DriveMark replicates the Windows Aatlas bootup process, a mix of operations that tends to creates queue depths not usually seem in a non-server environment. Further, its sheer mechanical prowess combined with its monstrous capacity makes the 10K V a formidable single-user performer. Conclusion These performance results leave little doubt that Maxtor’s Atlas 10k IV is the king of its generation. Note that while the measurement is an A-weighted decibel score that weighs frequencies in proportion to human ear sensitivity, a low score does not necessarily predict whether or not a drive will exhibit a high-pitch whine that some may find intrusive.
