Today's test system is identical to the one we recently used to test the Highpoint controller, which we have also thrown in for good measure as a desktop version along with the ICH9R SATA RAID and of course the Promise Controller.

 

We did both RAID 0 and RAID 1 tests to see just what we got out of each setup.

 

HD Tach

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 3.0.1.0
