Our last synthetic test before we get to the real world tasks. Here we are looking for 4K speeds and 4K at 4 and 32 Queue Depths with NCQ. Here we see the HighPoint RocketRAID with two C300 256GB drives dominating the 4K 32QD test and taking a lead in the 4K 4QD.

The HighPoint / Crucial combo again takes a strong lead when multiple instructions are sent, but in a single 4K write the Intel SandForce combo has a bit of an advantage. Now that we have the synthetics taken care of, we can move onto the real world performance testing.
