In single drive form we see that the VelociRaptor is quite a bit faster than even the previous generation Raptor 150 GB drive. When compared to the 36 GB first generation, it is easy to see just how far this product line has evolved.

 

RAID 0 testing shows that the VelociRaptor scales very well in two drive form on both the 680i and Areca controller.
