128k sequential speed reflects the maximum sequential throughput of the RAID controller. Surprisingly, the only area the Rocket 750 exhibits inconsistent performance is with 128k sequential workloads. The Rocket 750 is spec'd for 2 GB/s speeds, but we only managed to attain an average of 750 MB/s with 128k sequential testing. Further testing with larger stripe sizes resulted in a peak throughput of 1.9 GB/s with sequential read activity.

The HighPoint 750 struggles again in our sequential write testing with the smaller 128k file size, only averaging 916 MB/s. With a 1MB file size, we attained an average of 1.8 GB/s.

The Rocket 750 once again shows a preference for write activity with larger file sizes. The controller steadily gains speed as we add in heavier write workloads.
