FireCuda Worth it?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Looking at getting another drive, I have 3TB in my system at the moment and thinking on getting another 2TB drive just for games only. Then my 1tb drive will be removed and used as backup windows/files. At the moment my games are on normal "Seagate Barracuda - 2 TB 7200rpm" with other files that#s not gaming but it's getting full LOL


I know how FireCudas works but Newegg is the cheapest then amazon right now LOL

Firecuda is just a brand name, it's all the same inside.

All you need to know is the RPM and cache size.

firecuda is the hybrid SSHDD



OP, nah, SSHDD's aren't generally worth it over their HDD counterparts

Thanks, People always said that  FireCuda is faster but cache size is low as 64mb at 7,200 rpm. At high more cost. 


 BarraCuda for a same size drive, 7200 RPM, 256 MB Cache https://www.amazon.co.uk/Seagate-BarraCuda-Internal-Drive-Cache/dp/B07H2RR55Q/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=ST3000DM007&qid=1586348817&s=computers&sr=1-2&th=1

For just storage does not really matter, if you have your OS on it then Firecuda will be faster on booting and also on some loading times, it has an 8GB NAND memory on it.


Of course depends on the cost (which you did not mention) as well, if the different it's small like 10$ I will go with firecuda, also has longer warranty if I am not wrong.

Well, it will cache frequently used stufd like a game. Can see some speed up, so depends on price and storage ratio you ok with.
