We would like to thank the following companies for supplying and supporting us with our test system hardware and equipment:
AVADirect, GIGABYTE, Patriot Memory, Cooler Master, LSI and Noctua.

You can read more about TweakTown's Storage Product Testing Workstation and the procedures followed to test products in this article.

Today we will be testing the HighPoint RocketRAID 640 4-port, SATA 6G RAID controller with two Crucial RealSSD C300 256GB SATA 6G drives.

We ran two sets of tests with the controller. The first was a single drive test that used the controller and a single Crucial C300 and another set of tests with dual drives in RAID 0. For comparison we are also including benchmarks from dual A-DATA S599 drives on the GIGABYTE X58A-UD7 SATA 3G ports.

In ATTO we tested the 2 drive C300 RAID 0 array to see what the best case scenario performance would be. After looking back at the single drive performance we see that performance pretty much doubled with two C300's on the HighPoint RocketRAID 640. It appears that we are off to a great start!
