Shouldn't my SSHD be faster?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I have a Seagate 2TB 3.5inch SSHD and did a performance benchmark on it using Samsung Magician and was pretty disappointed with the result. Surely it should be faster right? Did I install it incorrectly(maybe used the wrong SATA port on the Motherboard)? Or is this the general speed of this SSHD. I know SSHD's work better the more they are used as they cache frequently used files and store them in the flash memory so maybe a benchmark test isn't the best way to gauge their performance but 119mb/s read seems very low?

seems pretty normal speed for SSHD.

Please try searching up the answer before you post here but I am always glad to help

I am going to echo what the others said: your results are perfectly normal.

Nothing wrong with that speed. Remember it is still a mechanical HDD, just with an added SSD buffer instead of only the DRAM buffer.

Thanks for that, it really does not seem very fast. Even when opening up folders containing pictures on a fresh start up(only on the initial opening) it is not that quick. The Samsung SSD though performs insanely well.

Because it is a hdd. All it does is cache some very small amount of frequently accessed stuff into it's buffer which can easily be fully taken up by a single game. Sshd died out because of them just not being faster than a hdd in almost any situation whilst costing more.

The drive caches most frequently used files of programs and OS like for boot and startup and those you use often like web browser.
