On both the ASUS SAS and LSI 9260-8i the SMART Modular is quite a bit slower than the consumer Vertex 2 drives in sequential reading across the drive.

The write speeds are a little slower than the read speeds with both system configurations, but it is important to remember that the XceedIOPS is built for high IO transactions and not for sequential reading and writing.
