SiSoft Sandra (System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is a synthetic Windows benchmark that features different tests used to evaluate different PC subsystems.

 

 

In our first test we use the drive index benchmark in Sandra XI which measures the drives read speed.

 

As you can see, the ICH8R and RocketRAID 2340 RAID controller are about even in single drive configurations and they are not far off maxing out the performance of the hard drive itself. When it comes to RAID 0 though, the 2340 shows its true colors and provides a read speed of 144MB/s. Keep in mind that the maximum sustained theoretical transfer speed of Seagate's 7200.10 drives are 78MB/s (for a single drive) and that's quite impressive with all considered.
