In testing the performance of Thunderbolt storage solutions, we utilize the Apple MacBook Pro Retina, late 2013 model, which is currently running OS X 10.9.1. Full system specifications are available above. To create RAID volumes in OS X, I use Apple Disk Utility with 64K stripe size. In addition to this, we use a Windows test system (seen above) for Thunderbolt appliances that support. Benchmarks used in Windows include IOMeter 1.1; all volumes use a 128K-stripe size, and are tested without a file system.
