[gmx-users] Hard Drive Speed

Hi all--

I was just wondering if anyone could give me an idea how important hard
drive speed is for overall simulation speed.  More specifically, I was
curious how much slower a run would be if it were storing trajectory files
(.trr, .xtc, .edr) to an hard drive (7200 RPM) versus a SCSI
hard drive (10,000 or 15,000 RPM).
