6TB Barracuda 5400RPM 256MB Cache Internal Hard Drive (ST6000DM003)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, allows a full data transfer of a respectable 185 megabytes per second. Even the fastest drives have problems with them. The BarraCuda achieves this dream value with a speed of 5,400 rpm. Nevertheless, she remains reserved about volume development.
The cache is also very large with 256 megabytes. With 185 MB / s data transfer rate, the limit of the older SATA-2 connection is not far anymore, but the SATA-6G interface 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 extremely fast, even in comparison with many HDDs from other manufacturers. So Green-IT not only convinces the mind, but also the heart.
