Today we will be taking a look at the performance of two matching A-DATA S599 SSDs in RAID 0 to observe their performance. Testing was conducted on a GIGABYTE X58A-UD7 motherboard using the onboard Intel SATA II controller and the latest Intel RST 9.6 driver.
The new RST 9.6 driver is the first from Intel to fully support the TRIM command in RAID 0. To achieve maximum write performance we had to play around with the settings and ended up running around 5 rounds of tests.
ATTO Baseline Performance
Version and / or Patch Used: 2.34
ATTO is used by many disk manufacturers to determine the read and write speeds that will be presented to customers.
In ATTO we see the read speeds leaping very quickly to nearly full speed, while the write speeds needed a little more depth to achieve the maximum performance. Both read and write results are smoking fast and with the new RST driver in place will stay that way for a long time.
