MSI TurboBook GX600 Gaming Notebook
Hard Disk Performance Results
HDTach is a free hard disk benchmarking program from SimpliSoftware. This benchmark is not only capable of producing results on hard disk access times but also CPU usage required during disk access. The "Long bench" was run a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest results being omitted and an average calculated from the remaining 3 results.
One area in which the notebooks should be fairly evenly matched considering that they are of similar age is in the hard disk benchmarks. However, as we can see from above the Western Digital Scorpio 320gb disk installed in the MSI GX600 totally flattens the Hitachi Travelstar in the Acer. This came as quite a shock considering we slated the 5400RPM rotational speed of the Scorpio hard disk on the previous pages.
