Submission + - Windows 7 Hard Drive and SSD Performance Analyzed (hothardware.com)

bigwophh writes: "Despite the fact that it is based on many of the same core elements a Vista, Microsoft claims Windows 7 is a different sort of animal and that it should be looked at in a fresh new light, especially in terms of performance. With that in mind, this article looks at how various types of disks perform under Windows 7, both of the traditional platter based variety and newer solid state disks. Disk performance between Vista and Win7 is compared using a hard drive and an SSD. SSD performance with and without TRIM enabled is tested. And application performance is tested on a variety of drives. Looking at the performance data, it seems MS has succeeded in improving Windows 7 disk performance, particularly with regard to solid state drives."
