I have been through all the ratings and performance reviews of the components of my computer system. The thing that I didn’t completely understand is the Hard Disk Data Transfer Rate, and how does it affect the quality of a PC?
What Does Hard Disk Data Transfer Rate Mean?
The HDD Data Transfer Rate depends on the location of the track. It is higher if data store on Outer track (more data sectors/rotation) and lower if data store on inner track (fewer data sectors/rotation).
The HDD with speed 7200 rpm has 1030 Mbit/sec ‘Disk-to-Buffer) data transfer rate and ‘Buffer-to-Computer’ interface is 3.0 Gbit/sec SATA. It also depends on the computer’s file system fragmentation, rotational speed, and data recording density.
