Or heck, even modern 16tb 7200 drives blow them away in everything but access times, because such large platters have such larger transfer rates.

Phison is kicking ass and taking names.
read speeds up to 7000 MB/s and write up to 6850 MB/s
That’s starting to embarrass my WD Velociraptor 10,000 RPM drive.
It does look tasty and I would be interested...so long as it isn't at a Samsung price point.
I have a 970 pro now for OS, but these 980s look like they will put that to shame... IF you have PCIe 4, which only AMD has right now (good ole intel asleep at the switch again). Otherwise they are crippled at like 4000 MB/s
I had a RAID0 of them. Pretty fast 15 years ago.
Sold them to a friend and one of them died 2 days later.
They only had such low access times because they were 2.5" drives. 3.5" access times have actually improved in the last 15 years, no matter if large platters or not.This comment was edited on Sep 1, 2020, 04:36.
I have given up on waiting for BIS to come back to their senses and do a real ArmA 2 successor.
