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
