For our testing we compared the Rocket RAID 2220 against its older brother, the RocketRAID 1820A to see how far these controllers have come.

The nature of the Gigabyte Ultra board is that it supports PCI-X slots with the ICH5-S Southbridge. The ASUS P4GD1 was selected due to its support for DDR memory, the same Socket 478 CPU but also supports PCI Express x1 slots, which is what we needed to run the Silicon Image 3132 PCI-E controller card.
