Do Hd Hiccups Lower A 3dmark Score?
If a hard drive coughs and skips in the middle of a benchmark, does the program register it as a framerate dip?

I get good scores, but I think they could be higher if this wasn't the case...

this also happens in unreal 2k3, GTA3, Army Ops, and a couple other games... I know why (5400rpm, 512k cache-poop), and I know what I need, but I'd like to know if HD speed has a direct effect on benchmark scores...

every 2 wks...
It's the cache size on this stoopid HD (512k vs. 2mb)that's getting me... This also seems to affect performance on my playstation emulator...

I've never even seen another ATA-100 hard drive with a cache that small...
