Alas, my tests were done on an SSD.  I haven't used platters for 
anything but backups in half a decade.

In a few years we may reach a point where the speed difference between 
disk and RAM will be so minor that it'll render half of the things they 
teach in CS101 obsolete.

But for now, the order-of-magnitude difference on writes introduced by 
Defender's RTP will likely remain a problem until Windows brings their 
AV monitoring methods in line with more advanced packages.
