Green IT is often equated with poor performance because high efficiency is usually only possible with limited power. The HDD specialist Seagate proves with the BarraCuda now the opposite. That this is an economical model , is clear. On the other hand, hard drives are not really the power guzzlers in the PC, so the real saving effect should not be overstated.
It is therefore rather surprising that the HDD, despite a significantly lower power consumption percentage, enables a rich data transfer of 190 megabytes per second . The BarraCuda achieves this dream value with a speed of 5,400 rpm . Nevertheless, it remains restrained in terms of volume development and offers a lot of storage space with 8 TB.
The cache is also very large with 256 megabytes . With 190 MB / s, the limit of the SATA 2 port is no longer far away, but the SATA 6G built in here not only offers the advantage of a higher bandwidth. The protocol has also been significantly streamlined, for example, to increase energy efficiency and to optimize the transmission of multiple simultaneous high-bandwidth data streams.
The BarraCuda is very economical, quiet and at the same time enormously fast, also in comparison with many HDDs of other manufacturers. So Green-IT not only convinces the mind, but also the heart.
