The RAIDDrive II Plus features speeds of 2.6GB/s in maximum sequential read and 3.2GB/s in sequential write. The drive features fairly standard built-in ECC and redundant firmware. There is also a fairly large chunk of 1GB of DDR2 cache, but this will be needed for LBA mapping for the large capacities, up to 2TB, provided by the PCIe 2.0 x8 drive.

The quest for benchmark world records led Paul further and further down the overclocking rabbit hole. SSDs and RAID controllers were a big part of that equation, allowing him to push performance to the bleeding edge. Finding the fastest and most extreme storage solutions led to experience with a myriad of high-end enterprise devices. Soon testing SSDs and Enterprise RAID controllers at the limits of their performance became Paul's real passion, one that is carried out through writing articles and reviews.
