Default Performance

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

My System Specs


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
Phenom II 945 :: ASUS M4A78-E (780G) :: BFG 285GTX :: 4GB Mushkin DDR2 (5-4-4-12) :: Creative Xi-Fi :: Seagate 500 gig 7200.12 (better than WD BLACK!!!!!) :: Samsung 2493HM
