Let me first chime in with some advice. RAID isn't for everyone. Today we'll be using RAID 0, pairing two drives into one volume where data is read and written faster since the load is shared. In RAID 0 if one drive somehow fails, you will lose all your data. It's a bit like a double down; very exciting, but you can go broke much faster.
Currently TRIM is not supported in RAID. When using SSDs in RAID you want a drive that has good garbage collection. Basically, that means the drive is capable of cleaning up after itself when you delete data from the array. Since this is our first RAID Report with two drives controlled by the SandForce SF-2281 controller, we'll keep an eye on how the pair fair in this task.
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.
Get a load of this! Not only is the Patriot Wildfire able to break 1000MB/s read, but it almost does so when writing data as well. What's crazy is we are using a standard motherboard, no add-on RAID controller like the LSI units we test to achieve incredible speeds like this. The Intel Z68 and X68 motherboards are almost as fast as the add-in cards for RAID 0 with a pair of drives.
Come to think of it, forget calling it 1000MB/s, let's break out a new term; 1GB/s. That's a capital B.
