Test System Setup

 

Processor: Intel Pentium Extreme Edition 840 (800MHz FSB) (Supplied by Intel)

 

Memory: 2x 512MB Super Talent DDR2-1000

 

Hard Disk: 2x Seagate 7200.9 in RAID 0 (Supplied by Seagate)

 

Graphics Card: ASUS GeForce 7800GT (Supplied by ASUS)

 

Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP2

 

Drivers: Intel INF 8.0.1.1002, nVidia 5.52 IDE and Highpoint 1.1

 

Like with our RocketRAID 2320 review, we are pitting the RocketRAID 2130 against the integrated SATA-II controllers built into Intel's ICH7 Southbridge chipset (through the ASUS P5WD2E motherboard) and nVidia's nForce 4 SLI chipset (through the ASUS P5N32 SLI motherboard).

 

For every testing configuration, we used RAID 0 with NCQ enabled for a level playing field.

Highpoint's RocketRAID 2130 performs just as expected.
