Our test system today consists of two hard disks tested in RAID 0 and RAID 1 arrays. Since we don't have any more we can't test RAID 0+1 and RAID 5. However, these two main RAID setups are what you're most likely to use for either speed or redundancy reasons. We compared the results to the ICH9R's RAID setup which has proven to be quite quick in the past.
