Synchronous flash makes a very big difference in RAID. SandForce controllers don't use background garbage collection, so the performance increase from the flash helps keep your drives running at higher speeds for longer. In the read test across the drive we see sequential transfer performance that equals the ATTO performance.

Without TRIM, writing to your drives will start to degrade performance. In the write test across the drive we achieved an average speed of 641.9MB/s.
