Single Client Performance Wrap Breakdown

 

It doesn't come as a surprise to see the ASRock 1U12LW-C2750 at the top of most tests, both with and without the 10GbE add-on card. With the addition of 10GbE, the server performs amazing well with 10 drives in RAID 5 and a SanDisk X210 cache drive. The 1GbE test does not use the cache drive but still has 10 Seagate NAS drives in RAID 5.
