With the single 240GB Vertex LE we see that it performs at the same level as the Vertex 2 (listed at the bottom of the charts). For the most part that theme will carry over time and time again in this article, but look at what happens when you run two drives in RAID 0.

With dual drives we achieved better read performance than we did with the SATA III Vertex 3. Things are going to get interesting.

Unfortunately the write performance with two drives in RAID 0 on the Intel chipset doesn't do so well. You still get solid performance, but this combination just doesn't give the same results as we saw while reading.

The single drive write performance was as we expected, almost identical to the Vertex 2.
