HD Tune Pro - Read Performance
WOW!!! - we weren't kidding when we were talking about extreme storage performance!
These RAID 0 numbers are on level and in fact well past the performance of the 80GB Fusion-io ioDrive in pure transfer rate speed - yet it costs more than this SSD + controller setup. As you can see, under RAID 0 we attained a maximum read speed of a truly incredible 660MB/s and the average is still extremely healthy at a massive 652MB/s.
The slowest RAID array level on average speed is the two disk drive RAID 1 array, as can be expected. This is then followed by RAID 6 and considering its impressive redundancy in this level, the performance is still very good.
As we can see with this SSD setup, enabling write caching in the controller BIOS and in Windows Vista did not result in a huge performance increase in our read tests.
