The crucial parameter that affects the speed of a hard drive is the number of revolutions per minute (RPM). In case of the Seagate IronWolf 8TB CMR, you get 7200 RPM revolutions per minute. This is great news for people who demand more from their devices, such as graphic designers, gamers, video editors, and people who tend to use large amounts of data.
