As with the Read Testing, the VelociRaptor is much faster at writing data than previous Raptors. The VelociRaptor is actually faster in this test as a single drive than two previous generation Raptors in RAID 0 when used on the 680i chipset.

 

We also see that the VelociRaptor scales very well on both controllers. The professional level Areca controller really allows these drives to stretch their legs and show just how powerful they are.
