CDM shows the SATA 3.0 C300 drives in RAID 0 hits over 1300MB/s on the read for the first time. Does anything more really need to be said?
In the write department, the C300 setup loves CDM to bits in every way and shows around a three times speed improvement over the SATA 2.0 SSD setup.
What is really amazing here and something to take note of is the 4K write speed on the C300 setup - 115MB/s!
4K is important because this file size range is used for a lot of OS related programs and tasks and results in an almost instant access to a lot of programs and so forth. The C300 setup "feels" much quicker and snappier than the X25-E setup in Windows and if I had to put a number on it, I'd say it is two to three times faster in that sense. My previous X25-E RAID 0 setup was already very fast, but the C300 takes it to yet a new and improved level.
