Read Tests




I have to admit that I have never been a big fan of the Silicon Image 3124. When it comes to performance there are better options available. But when it comes to price, well, that is another story as these controllers have to be very cheap at this time.


Here we get a chance to see one of the largest issues with the 3124, its ability to wreck what should be a nice flat performance graph. Here we see that the minimum, average and maximum speeds are all over the place, even with the JBOD configuration. Most boot drives spend little time reading data in a STR fashion, but when loading programs like games many of the files are large and read in this manner.


Write Tests




We see the same issue come up with the write STR. On the bright side, both the average and maximum performance of the RevoDrive is better than a single Vertex 2.
