Are all the 8tb drives the slowest ones?

Not all, but this one is likely an archive drive, so slow (5900 RPM), low cache (128 MB), and SMR. I haven't done enough research to know if there are 8TB externals with faster Barracuda Pros in them. The WD externals have Reds in them, though.

EDIT: does anyone know of an external with a Barracuda Pro?

I don't even need external but they are usually cheaper here anyways
