  Test Bed:
  • Athlon Tbird 1.4 GHz

  I will be comparing the Samsung SP8004H (80GB) to the Samsung SP4004H (40GB) and the Maxtor 54098H8 (40 GB).

SiSoft Sandra:

Samsung SP8004H (80GB)

Samsung SP4004H (40GB)

Maxtor 54098H8 (40 GB)

  The clear winner here is the Samsung SP8004H (80GB) hard drive, scoring 3427 points over the SiSoft reference.

WinBench 99:

  Again the Samsung SP8004H (80GB) Hard drive beats out the rest of the competition, turning in some of the highest number between the 3 drives.

HD Tach:




  HD Tach Confirms what the other two benchmarks have shown.  The Samsung SP8004H (80GB) is the fastest drive we have tested.  The Samsung SP8004H (80GB) did have a smaller burst rate in our tests than its 40 GB cousin, but it had a much higher average read speed and less dips than its 40 GB cousin.

Operating Temperature:

   We used the same setup when we reviewed the Samsung SP4004H (40GB).
