Something is not right here...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Something is fishy, and I don't like it...

First of all, I got two Seagate 320Gb 7200.10's in RAID 0....
I average 136Mb...

I was thinking about getting two Western Digital 640Gb's and RAID those...
But I also was thinking maybe I can go VelociRaptor's in RAID 0...

After looking around here for some bench's... This is what I found... and something is definitely not right...

TWO VelociRAPTOR's in RAID-0 @ 128K stripe gets... ( 153.1MB/s )


TWO 640Gb AAKS in RAID-0 @ 128K stripe gets... a WOMPING ( 208.4MB/s )


Is it just me or does this not seem right... I am so confused... MaxiShines MAXIMUM performance gained with the VelociRaptors RAID-0 @ 32K stripe was 204.2MB/s - and - STILL cannot beat 640Gb AAKS score of 208.4MB/s...

What is going on? am I going nuts?
