With ATTO running at QD10, we hit a max of 11.8GB/s sequential read and 6.2GB/s sequential write. Compared with our RAIDXpert array running as a system disk, max sequential performance shows significant improvement.
Anvil Storage Utilities
Running Anvil's produces a total score of 19,462.71. The score doesn't look that bad until you realize that most of it is coming from high sequential performance. Here again, a single 760p has far better random performance than we are getting from a four drive "RAIDXpert" managed array.
With CrystalDiskMark, we again see good sequential performance especially at QD1 read where it is a lot better than we are getting from our VROC array. But once again, multi-threaded random performance is abysmal.
Running AS SSD benchmark produces an unimpressive total score of 3,448. We hit 8.6GB/s sequential read and 4.1GB/s sequential write. If you run RAIDXpert you better hope all you will need is sequential performance, because that is the only thing you are going to get.
Iometer Sequential Read/Write QD32
(No partition on the array)
We hit 12.7GB/s sequential read with Iometer.
(No partition on the array)
We hit 6.6GB/s sequential write with Iometer.
Fantastic sequential performance for sure. We went ahead and checked out random performance on Iometer with RAIDXpert and it was so bad we didn't even want to show it. It was less than one 760p produces. Overall, RAIDXpert is a total disappointment except for pure sequential, which isn't going to happen very often in a typical user setting. We do love the Threadripper Platform and ASRock's Ultra Quad M.2 Card, just not when running "RAIDXpert".
If you are going to use the Ultra Quad M.2 Card on an AMD X399 platform then we would suggest using MS SoftRAID so you can avoid RAIDXpert altogether. It won't be bootable, but it will deliver far better overall performance.
