Very Slow Raid 0 - Page 6

post #51 of 62
I still say considering the price/performance ratio the seagate's 7200.10 barracuda's are THE drive to have

I have 640 gig storage and you don't beat me by much for your decreased capacity and > $$

But those are good scores none the less

Did you try the other drivers?

*EDIT*

Whoops didn't see there was a 2nd page... have you tried HDTach?

What other drivers? I have the stock raid drivers from my mb disk and i installed intel matrix storage.


also in my sisandra benches i didn't shut background programs, if that even effects it

It is also quite remarkable that the Read Burst speed depends a lot on the hard disk drive firmware versions and controller driver version!

But if we take a closer look at the obtained results, we will see that it would be simply impossible for any controller to transfer 334MB/sec via the regular PCI32/33MHz bus. It means that these results are of no value and HDTach benchmark cannot always measure the Read Burst speed for SATA HDDs correctly.

Looking at Cravins results, especially the burst speeds, had me suspicions. Looked like it was some sort of ramdrive based on those numbers. I dont even think a ramdrive could hit those burst speeds. I can get pretty good numbers on my SAS Raid Set, and for the price, would have been a bit upset if yours were spanking mine.

I agree. However, considering performance alone you cant go past a Raptor.

Depends on what you call 'much'. My rig was built for gaming speed. To me a 30% speed difference is significant. If capacity was an issue I would probably have gone with a similar setup to you. Its 'horses for courses'..

You guys are comparing 1 figure and ignoring the fact that before data can even be used, it has to be accessed. The Raptor has the fastest access time of any Sata or Sata2 hard drive in the world. Why are they so expensive? Because they use enterprise class platters with fluid bearings and high power motors in order to spin at 10k rpm. You get what you pay for, but as in every market, there is a law of diminishing returns. The question you need to ask yourself is....how fast is good enough for me? I have the perpendicular drive for storage and the Raptors for my games. I'll be damned if anyone is going to have an advantage against me for loading first Playing EQ2, I can say that having Raptors was a major advantage. I could assess the entire scenerio, pickout who their healer was, and prepare to battle before most have finished loading. You can't put a price tag on that

I knw that the raptrs have the performance advantage, I just question their additional cost

So what you are saying is that the random access speed is more important than the average and burst speed up to a point? Am trying to figure this out as soon i will be going RAID...
