WorldBench uses scripting to step through a series of tasks in common Windows applications. It then produces an overall score. WorldBench also spits out individual results for its component application tests, allowing us to compare performance in each. We'll look at the overall score, and then we'll show individual application results.
The Barracuda 7200.12 turns in a middle-of-the-pack performance in WorldBench and just trails its 1.5TB predecessor. That puts the drive behind terabyte models from Hitachi, Samsung, and Western Digital, although there's only a four-point spread in overall scores across the entire field.

Seagate's latest 'cuda sticks to the middle of the pack through most of WorldBench's multimedia editing and encoding tests, but it's the only drive to lag behind in Movie Creator.
