7200rpm and 5400rpm
Posted on 2004-08-26
HI i recently bought a seagate barracuda 7200.7 80GB HDD. my sys is a intel 810e original MB based system with PIII 800Mhz.
it has a default 20GB HDD (5400rpm) since mine is branded sys from Hp model BRIO Ba300. i heard that puttinng both the HDDs on one IDE i.e. primary, and since both have different speeds the performance of the new 80GBHDD is affected since it runs at the lower speed as that of the 20GB 5400rpm HDD. is it true? if it is, then is there a work around? and my BIOS is phoenix IZ.0.04 does this support ATA100 speed?
