In testing the performance of Thunderbolt storage solutions, we utilize the Apple MacBook Pro Retina (the late 2013 model), which, as of writing this article, is running OS X 10.9.1. Full system specifications are available above.

 

To create RAID volumes in OS X, I use SoftRAID 4.5.3 with 64K stripe size for RAID 0 volumes. All results pertaining to SSD performance are run with three Seagate 600 Pro 200GB Enterprise SSDs, and may not reflect the actual performance you can achieve using CalDigit SSD Drive Modules.

Check the performance of any drive on your system to ensure it is tuned for the performance you need.
