There's more than just RPM speed that determines transfer speeds, but I normally get around 45 to 60 MB/s. If you're really only getting 100 mbps, then there could be an issue. What's the average size of the files you're copying?

ok, it seems to fluctuate, just tranferred a 700mb file and it was 282mbps.

i just transfer 1gig movie files between my drives and anime series, but i exclude those from this question because its just a folder with episodes.

i know if im playing music or something that it lowers transfer speed cause one drive is occupied

100 mbps average is pretty normal

it depends on how many files and their size

say you have 100,000 files ranging in size from 10k to 1mb, it's much faster to transfer those if you zip them up uncompressed as one file, because it's one contiguous piece of data.
