While reading or writing data this platter disk will spin-in 360 degrees at high speed, The Term RPM stands for Rotation Per Minute, which indicates how many times this Platter disk drive completes a Rotation in a Minute. If your HDD RPM is high, then you can access the data from the Hard drive at high speed. That doesn’t mean if you have a High RPM HDD then your computer might work faster. High RPM HDD’s won’t show any effect on your computer speed, Then you may wonder what is the main purpose of High RPM HDD?, When you are started using High-Speed RPM HDD then it will improve overall Computer performance, means with the High-Speed RPM HDD your computer boot very fast and it will take only less time to start programs and transfer the data.

Mostly this High-Speed RPM HDD are used by Hardcore gamers for high performance while playing games.

Method 1: Check the Hard Drive RPM Physically

  • If the hard drive cable or plug or the SATA controller itself is an issue, try switching the hard disk connection from SATA controller 0 to controller 1 or use different ports. Another common strategy to discriminate all hardware and driver possibilities other than the hard disk itself is to simply remove the hard drive and plug it into a.
  • Note that all hard disk controllers provide hard disk status information in single/standalone mode only unless RAID mode is listed for the appropriate hard disk controller (RAID controller). Note: the firmware update for ASMedia ASM1051 USB3.0 bridge may work with enclosures, adapters based on this chip to get the missing status information.

One of the best and easy method to check the HDD RPM is to check the hard disk physically, remove few screws and open up the computer then check the HDD RPM on top of the HDD, Most of the hard disk manufacturers paste the hard disk details sticker on top of the HDD. This sticker contains details about Hard Disk Serial Number, Model Number, Company Name, the capacity of the HDD, RPM details, Firmware, Data of manufacture, and Voltage levels. From the given details you can easily find the RPM details. But some of the manufacturers won’t display the RPM details on the sticker.
