top right corner
not sure of those burst rates.. but I based my guess on transfer rates and access time.

edit: here is something about those burst rates.

Burst Rate
The burst rate is the highest speed (in megabytes per second) at which data can be transferred from the drive interface (IDE or SCSI for example) to the operating system.
so in the end.. might actually be something else than the one in the top right corner.

it sorta depends. the top right has a higher minimum but the bototm right has a lower minimum but a higher maximum. so they both just about equal out

Just 1 comment on the subject.If you have a SATA Motherboard,consider
a Sata to partition in 2 or 3.Installing them can be a PITA.
I wouldn't buy a new mbd just for this.I have noticed no difference.
Where do i get Hd Tune ? I'll test my Sata2.
