Hard disk performance
Posted 10 May 2004 - 04:41 AM
I am wondering because in theory both the hard disk spin, the operating system and games get the full speed of a hard disk.
Can anyone tell me the answer? Oh by the way please post your personal hard disk optimization tips too.
Thanks in advance. :wink:

my pc is configed this way
i have Windows on the first HD in the first partition
and my games are on the second HD
i think, a little bit performance boost should be able
but i think it´s more important where the "SWAP" dat is
because this date is used if u play ur games
and this Dat is also on the first HD in an extra partition
mhhh.....short: a little bit of performance should be able
but i think u get more if u use RAID 0 with the 2 HD´s
that´s a bigger performance increase

means if ya got and UDMA 2 disk you will not profit ... if its UDMA 5 or 6 disk and the 2nd one also is a 5 or 6 one you can make full use of the performance of both ...
just check you device manager for information ...
RAID is the 2nd way to get more performance ... but also the much more complicate one compared to just connect an additional HDD ...
but do not expect and very high performance increase
