But to answer you question simply - you can get very high sequential rates from RAID0 arrays of mechanical disks for cheap, but for many uses they don't approach the real-world usage speeds of an SSD because of their superior access times.
Thanks.

Can I post my WD HDD raid 0 ShortStroke using (47GB) of 157MB/s @ 4.8 ms access times or have others stated that before? I gave up on making this Raptor array any faster since I got the 4x Samgsung drives thinking more even if slow will perform fast...

My minimum looks unnaturally low, anything wrong with that?

Not really anything wrong, It was probably just something accessing the drive right then where you see it dip
. .. Here is my result with 3 of those same drives in RAID 0

The access time is sub-par to compared to a cheap SSD try to get it faster. The read troughput matters nothing to these SSD dudes.

I just bought into SSD RAID 0 with post in the next weeksl
I was sitting close to 500MB/s short stroked HDD and with another at 157MB/s 4.8 MS access time but darn it that's not fast enough!

Thee SSD bunch is a particular group.

he doesn't have an awesome score - he just benchmarked a somewhat useless ramdrive.

Short Stroke RAID0 setup:

Need: At least two HDDs/SSDs e.g. RAID0 scales almost perfect out to about 4 to 5 drives see tomshardware.com for RAID disk charts if you don't trust me. Not sure on SSDs but seen some sick YouTube videos of RAID0 SSDs. The SATA II spec is only going to get you so far before saturating the bus thou I get 500MB/s and 4000MGB/s burst I'm not sure how that translate to real rubber to the road performance. My WEI in windows 7 64-bit is 6.5 or 6.6 because of HDDs using mechanical drives (RAID0x4) but have seen SSDs get higher albiet with less storage.
BIOS: Support for RAID in IDE/or better yet SATA. Ideal would be those costly PCIx controller cards for RAID SATA $400 cost but otherwise just use motherboard supported raid controller if you don't have one then use Windoze RAID software even makes difference.
Result: Faster performance and seek times but may need to re-install OS/Applications and Data just a warning.

Assuming this is a new build we connect the drives per hardware instructions and power of machine. In bios setup configure drives in this case as SATA RAID. Once post screen comes up the new settings from bios change should allow option to press Ctrl-I or Ctrl-F depending on Intel or AMD systems.

In RAID setup screens e.g. press Ctrl-i or Ctrl-f the options are listed choose create volume. Select RAID0 select all the drives in system (assuming all drives are same spec ideally) and make the size for this first volume 10-20 percent of its normal size e.g. 250GB HHD would be 25GB but in RAID0 it gets multiplied by the number total drives in array so if you have 2 HHDS then choosing 50GB for the size would work out to be 10 percent of smallest drive. Another example would be having 4 HHDs each one is 1TB so 10 percent of the smallest in this case each drive is equal in size so the size is 100GB but since we select 4 drives it is actaully equating to 400GB and this number 400GB is what we choose for it's size. We continue to create second volume using the remaining space for our HHDs. Keep in mind 2TB volumes can not be bootable (windows can create GBT disks from those as MBR will only allow 2TB partitions to exist) or benchmarked via HD Tune 2.55 however HD Tach and ATTO will be able to benchmark 2TB or larger volumes.

There are many different mind sets for RAID volumes but if performance is the goal then RAID0 is the best without doubt. RAID 1, 0+1, 1+0, 5 are usually available via on-board controllers but in benchies those are not going to perform on par with straight up RAID0 configs. The option I have is just make two RAID0 volumes one of which is short stroked being 10-20 percent of physical smallest drive installed and the second consuming the excess.

Windows 7 has the option to load additional drivers at install time this allows certain controllers to be installed during install. The controller SATA RAID drivers are provided by your motherboard website it is important to get them and place on USB thumbdrive or floppy prior to installing OS though I found they are not needed for sucess they are needed in order to resolve device driver issues once windows is installed.

The second piece to installation is the runtime or additional software needed to configure the RAID once windows boots. This software is needed to enable the cache and queue settings. For Intel installed controllers it the Intel Matrix RAID software and for AMD its the RAIDxpert software. These applications are something you run once booted in windows to configure the RAID and manage it. I have found enabling the drive cache per volume allows for best benchmarks. The volume cache should be enabled by default and the individual drives caches per volume should also be enabled. Queue enabling has not always been benificial for AMDxpert so test the different permutations and see if it helps.

If you own two drives then RAID0 short stroking the first volume and then creating a second volume will allow two areas for applications/data/pagefiles/tmp files/games to live. After boot up of windows you need to right click computer manage disk systems and bring online the second volume and then format and assign drive letter. For me the second volume is made to be D: and I change the other existing drives to be above that so just change/add the drive lettering as needed. Once the second volume is on-line and formated make it your pagefile disk for C: e.g. no page file on C: and make the second volume D: system managed pagefile. That should help windows run better.

In this configuration install most everything with custom install such that the installation folders become D: instead of C: Windows will consume 20GB of drive space and everything else you install will go onto the new volume D: the larger of the volumes. If you have partition needs then you can further partition both C: at install time and D: after windows boots to meet those wishes.
