What is Buffered Seek?

by Dinesh Thakur

Buffered Seek: A mode of hard disk operation in which a sequence of commands to perform SEEKS operations are collected and executed all together rather than one at time. This saves time compared to non-buffered modes in which one seek must be executed before the next command can be accepted. All modern SCSI and ATA drives have buffered seek built into their internal mechanism.
