I can state without a doubt that there is no performance difference in the LTO-6 drives. You are correct that there was a speed difference for the FH LTO-4 and LTO-5 types, but it was due to a tape spooling difference rather than a cache size difference.

If your backup app can keep the drive spinning, you'll not see a difference with 6 FH vs HH. Plus, I don't know of a source for a non-used FH drive any longer.
