    SubjectRe: IDE Harddrive Performance
    From
    Dunno, just tried this on my box which has a 5400 RPM disk in and got 

    [root@smeg lpackham]# /sbin/hdparm -t /dev/hdc

    7200RPM on the on board
    /dev/hdc:
    Timing buffered disk reads: 64 MB in 3.94 seconds = 16.24 MB/sec
    [root@smeg lpackham]# /sbin/hdparm -t /dev/hdg

    7200RPM on a promise Ultra ATA 66
    /dev/hdg:
    Timing buffered disk reads: 64 MB in 3.02 seconds = 21.19 MB/sec
    [root@smeg lpackham]# /sbin/hdparm -t /dev/hda

    5400RPM on the on board
    /dev/hda:
    Timing buffered disk reads: 64 MB in 4.23 seconds = 15.13 MB/sec
