Hello, My question is about performance for HDDs with the same platter size but different number: Seagate Barracuda 1TB, 2TB, 3TB (1 platter, 2 and 3) Which has higher performance?

Thanks in advance

its not that simple i believe.

-more platters should have faster sustained transfer speeds
-a drive with less platters but higher platter size will have higher density and faster sustained transfer speeds
-a drive with more patters will have slower seek speeds

the above is not fact, just my educated guess on the topic
