It depends on the file sizes, number of files, etc. Are you reading or writing? Multiple tasks at the same time?
Based on personal experience, it's 2-3 times faster in reads compared to a 15k Cheetah drive, faster than that when writing. If you are reading and writing at multiple locations, you are looking at least 5-10x faster.
