Read Tests

The synthetic read speeds of the RE4-GP show that it is faster than the 2TB Caviar Green, but is still a little slower than the Seagate 1.5TB and Hitachi EK1000. The RAID 0 numbers show great scaling with the performance more than doubling that of the single drive.

 

Write Tests

The same holds true in the write test. The interesting thing here is just how close the drive is when compared to the VelociRaptor.
