I just started plotting a 5TB drive and the nonce generation is ok at ~ 4,000/minute however the disk writing is very slow bringing the overall speed down to ~1,000 nonces written per minute. That means it will take like 12 days to plot this drive. I haven't used any custom settings just ran this through the burst client for windows v0.3.9.3
I have heard that the Seagate drives are SMR and that is why they are slow. Is there anything I can do other than use a different drive?
Thanks for your help!
