i have a 7200.11 and its 500gb so how could it use 320gb platters?

Sorry, they use 250GB platters...only some 7200.11s used 320GBs...also just for future reference, it's quite common for manufacturers to "trim" platters...for example there are quite a few 320GB platter drives with some of the platter disabled..such as the 500/750GB Samsung F1 and 750GB Hitachi Desktar 7K1000.B. In fact, pretty much every generation of drive does this.

Anyway, my original point was that the seagate has a much higher platter density and that, along with other platter optimizations is where you are seeing the your performance difference, not the cache.

My Raptor X and my WD 1TB and Seagate 1TB benchmarked say that's not true at all.

Using the very highly technical technique for measuring temperatures - putting my hand on the drives, I can also confirm that my Raptor X is the coolest of all the HDs I have in the case. It's not a big difference (they are all very slightly warmer than room temp), but still....

The Raptor X isn't one of the old raptors

Well the raptor X's are actually superceeded by the 640gb WD caviar blacks which are just behind the velociraptors so there is range to debate on which is better as the raptors are better at some aspects whilst the Caviar blacks are faster at others in terms of real world performance I believe the 640gb caviar blacks are 1-3% slower then the velociraptors and once price/gb comes to play its an obvious choice...
