Read Tests

The G-Monster - PROMISE PCIe SSD is faster than the other drives we have tested recently in the STR test and it should be. The problem is that we are running four drives in RAID 0 and are seeing less than 2x the performance.

Write Tests

The write test is impressive as well on the surface, but just like the read test we were expecting to see a little more oomph from the array.
