The Server DriveMark is a convenient at-a-glance figure derived from the weighted average of results obtained from the four different loads. The GB capacity point is one that will be fulfilled by the use of 60, 68, and 80 GB disks. Applications include Adobe Photoshop v5. Introduction When they originally announced the DiamondMax Plus 9 along with the Plus 8, DiamondMax 16, and Fireball 3 back in September, Maxtor trumpeted the fact that it would be the first firm to deploy gigabyte platters across its entire ATA drive line. Maxtor is rolling out a separate line, the Maxline Plus, that incorporates similar mechanics but is backed by a longer three-year policy. Games, of course, are not multitasked- all five titles were run in a serial fashion featuring approximately half an hour of play time per game. It is doubtful that users would be able to discern the difference.

Those users ordering bare units from specialty resellers should, however, double check to ensure that they know exactly what kind of drive they should expect to receive. SR presents results to readers through a percentile ranking system.

Net Drive Temperature – The highest temperature recorded from diamodnmax point sample of a drive’s top plate after it has been under heavy load for 80 minutes.

Note, however, that all three drives nonetheless score very similarly. This test recreates Windows XP’s bootup from the initial bootstrap load all the way to initialization and loading of the following memory-resident utilities: Low-Level Results For diampndmax purposes only, StorageReview measures the following low-level parameters: The close-field measurement allows for increased resolution between drive sound pressures and eliminates interactions from outside environmental noise.


The drive comes with both legacy and SATA power connectors. All three drives return to parity in the Gaming DriveMark. Scores on top are better. Subjectively speaking, the drive emitted an ever-so-slight low-pitched hum. Heat and Noise Idle Noise – The sound pressure emitted from a drive measured at a distance of 18 millimeters. Multi-User Performance StorageReview uses the following tests to assess server performance: Please visit HWZ for the latest reviews and news.

Windows XP’s boot procedure involves significantly different access patterns and queue depths than those found in other disk accesses.

Lord of Destruction v1. A proprietary analysis engine then processes the qualified dataset. For more information click here.

Saya fact, the conversion is so simple and fast that it’s just a matter of redesigning the PCB to accomodate an extra chip to convert the natively parallel interface. Conversely, a high score does not necessarily indicate that the drive exhibits an intrusive noise envelope.

Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 (80GB, SATA) Overview – CNET

The connector layout are plain and simple – nothing too exciting to describe actually. The figure typically represents the lowest sustained transfer rate a drive delivers. Note maxtof the percentages in bold above may change as more information continues to be collected and analyzed.

Its score of Introduction Maxtor’s DiamondMax Plus 9 series has been one of the hot favorites when it was first launched sometime ago.


Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 GB (RPM SATA) (Page 1/7) :: Articles :: ®

The use of an external controller the Promise Ultra and its associated driver unfortunately makes it more difficult to consistently disable write caching which unfortunately precludes us from presenting average write access times. Service Time Graphs in milliseconds.

According to filtered and analyzed data collected from participating StorageReview. 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.

The figures provided are net temperatures representing the difference between the measured drive temperature and ambient temperature. Legacy Performance Graphs in megabytes per second. In addition to platter densities, the drives come equipped with either ball bearing or the newer and quieter fluid dynamic bearing maxtkr. Samsung ZET Review.

Since the product has already been introduced, it’s only a matter of just implementing a controller board with Serial ATA interface. Maxtor, p,us Western Digital, is moving away from discrete platter densities within a given family. The Server DriveMark is a convenient at-a-glance figure derived from the weighted average of results obtained from the four different loads.
