What is WorldBench? WorldBench is an applications-based benchmark that automatically installs a series of programs on your computer and then runs various tests to see how those apps perform on your system. The individual times for each test are used to create a composite score that indicates your system’s overall performance relative to other systems that have also run WorldBench.
The Raptor X drive performs very well in our tests, besting the previous top score by 3 full points which is not a small amount in this benchmark really. Our individual tests from the WorldBench suite show a healthy lead for the new 150 GB Raptor in those tests that are demanding on the storage subsystem. Nero is one of the biggest gainers with a 23% performance improvement over the 74 GB model.
