Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 240GB RAID 0 SSD Report

While not the newest drive on the block, Mushkin's Chronos Deluxe 240GB offers legendary LSI SandForce performance, at a price that is hard to beat.

Drive Properties

The majority of our testing will be done with our test drive/array as our boot volume. Our boot volume is 75% full for all OS Disk "C" drive testing, to mimic a typical consumer OS volume implementation. We're using 64K stripes for all our arrays. Write caching is enabled.

 

 

ATTO Baseline Performance

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 2.47

 

ATTO is a timeless benchmark used to provide manufactures with data used for marketing storage products.

This is what we like to see. Our ATTO chart has a nice pattern to it with transfers ramping up very quickly and remaining steady throughout.

 

Sequential Write

Writing sequential compressible data is where the Chronos Deluxe really shines. Our Chronos Deluxe array has double the performance of a single drive, and the arrays sequential speed ramps up at a much faster rate than a single drive.

 

Sequential Read

All the arrays on our chart can easily exceed 1.1GB/s when reading data. Notice how an array's throughput ramps up much faster than a single drive?

 

RAID 0 arrays are typically running full speed by 4K or 8K transfers, whereas single drives don't hit full speed until 64-128K transfers.
