Boot and load times
To test system boot and game level load times, we busted out our trusty stopwatch.
The 7200.12's boot time is nothing to write home about. Again, we see the latest 'cuda slipping toward the bottom of the heap, and more importantly, trailing its rivals. Heck, even Seagate's last-gen terabyte is faster here.
While the 7200.12 claws its way to the middle of the field in our Doom 3 level load test, it's one of the slowest drives in Far Cry.
