Raid 0 or Raptor - Page 2

post #11 of 18
I have a raid array, and my burst speeds are 300MB/s and average read is 90MB/s

Personally i would go for RAID-0

But raptors have their advantages too.

Hrm - that article on anandtech IS dated June 2004 - quite a lot could change in what is fast becoming two years ago

This is a useful thread, I was thinking of getting RAID0, but it really doesn't look so useful now.

So how about RAID5, eh?

Raid 5 is nice but keep in mind most raid 5 controlers will rewrite and remover your boot sector and personally I would make sure I had 4 drives instead of the minimal 3 just to make sure it was worth the trouble for the setup.

The article may be from 2004, but it uses the raptors (which haven't changed signifigantly since). The raid controllers and drivers may be slightly updated but the premise behind the benefits that RAID brings remains the same. I had raided raptors and single raptors and benched them every way possible. Considering, my main system is primarily for gaming, I saw very quickly that there was no benefit at all.

I think using Raid0 is subjective to the person doing the review..Here look at this link. http://www.digitalelements.org/index...op=show&rid=21
http://www.ocforums.com/showthread.p...ighlight=Raid0

Sure shows raid0 pounding out the performance.Additionally for any one to say unconditionally that raid0 offers no performace increase is ignoring how it works.Basically you are splitting a program in half, 1/2 to one disk 1/2 to the other and as you add more disks to the aray the data is brokem down into smaller parts.

Essentially what you get is full disk speeds when accessing data and each disk has a lot less data to deal with because of the splitting of data..So in theroy and as it should when you apply this to the desk top there is a performance increase.Is it massive ? Is it ground shattering ? No but there is a performance increase and for an overclocker lookig for every bit of speed they can muster it is worth while to do.

Just be SURE to have a dedicated storage solution for important files and data that is kept off the array
