Does raid 0 SSD boot Faster then single SSD

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
i want to know this because i did a test with a single seagate 7200.12 drive and also with Raid 0 two of them no difference in boot times. I do get better performance once im booted up i get about 220MBs

so does it boot faster on raid 0 with 2 SSD

Thanks

It boots faster with an SSD period. Going RAID-0 won't really improve your boot times. Alternatively, if you short stroke your current HDD array, it can decrease boot times due to the lower access times associated with short stroking. That's where SSD's really shine, 0.1ms access times vs a HDD with 8-13ms access times. That's what makes them so much faster.

Depending on how long it takes your RAID controller to initialize and how much latency (if any) is added by RAIDing, it may take longer.
post #4 of 12
it should in theory, but that doesn't always work out due to latency by the raid controller. I believe you notice a little of a speed increase in booting with the SSD's though...

I had 2 Seagate barracuda's in Raid0 and it took me 53-62 seconds to be on my desktop with everything loaded...

It now takes me right at 42 seconds every time with my single SSD, Raid0 with 2 of these you would probably see a little increase over the single.

Hope that helps a little...

A LITTLE? Dude, 40 seconds from the time i hit restart till i'm back at my desktop. If it wasn't extremely faster, i would have never bought a second one....

Restarting is different for me, it only takes me 41 seconds to go from desktop back to desktop restarting, but cold booting it takes a little longer due to the wait time for post.

Depends on a lot of things.

BIOS/POST time
RAID Controller Initialization
RAID Controller Speed/Max Throughput
OS
The dumbass doing it all

I'll have to check again, but I can swear with my single boot Intel SSD, I see my full desktop within 10 seconds of my AMI Bios screen disapearing which is only on the screen maybe 1 second.

My 2nd SSD is due in a couple weeks, depending on how much cash the GF destroys.

I now have no Windows Welcome screen with the colorful Windows animation.
  • Quickboot enabled in Bios
  • Disabled the Pre Bios, "browsergate /skype/photoviewer"
  • Disabled GUIBoot in MSconfig (Boot Tab)
Any others you guys can suggest? I havent really seen the need to disable any unused USB, or 1394 ports in Bios. It Posts so fast it's rediculous. There's really no need for me to use standby at this point.
