Solid state storage is the most important performance component found in a modern system today. Without it, you do not even have a performance system.
Like SLI does for video performance, RAID 0 does for storage performance. Because storage continues to be the biggest performance bottleneck on your system, there's nothing that will increase overall system performance more than increasing your storage performance. SSD's have taken our systems to a level of performance that can never be accomplished by traditional mechanical storage. Stacks of HDD's in RAID can easily be out performed by a single SSD.
A single SSD provides great overall system performance on its own, but when you start RAIDing them together, that magic gets even better. RAID 0 is something easily accomplished, it's not some black art like extreme overclocking or component modding. The overall storage system performance increase that a pair or more of SSD's in RAID 0 brings to the table is quite compelling; as demonstrated by this RAID report.
Going forward, TweakTown will be bringing you regular consumer based RAID reports to complement our industry leading storage coverage. So, the next time you go to buy an SSD, ask yourself, does it make sense to get one larger capacity drive? Or, do I want the superior performance of two or more drives in RAID 0 to go along with that capacity?
