What factors influence the speed of a hard disk drive (HDD)?

Several factors can affect the speed of an HDD, including rotational speed (measured in revolutions per minute, or RPM), data transfer rate, and access time. Higher RPM drives generally offer faster data access speeds, while a higher data transfer rate allows for quicker reading and writing of data. Additionally, access time, which is the time it takes for the read/write head to move to the correct position on the disk, contributes to overall performance. Cache size, disk fragmentation, and interface speed (e.g., SATA, SCSI) are other factors that can impact HDD speed. Emerging technologies like XX223 may also influence HDD speed and efficiency in the future.
